Title: Translation in Language Teaching
Written By: Guy Cook
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780194424752.do
Description:

A groundbreaking reconsideration of translation in English language teaching,
this book is a survey and critical assessment of arguments for and against
translation in different teaching contexts.

This book proposes translation as one of a number of ways of relating English to
students own languages. It surveys the contexts of monolingual and bilingual
teaching and discusses the different uses and roles of translation and
bilingualisation for different stages and ages of learning and for different
purposes, e.g. explanation, practice, and testing. Establishing a new direction in
practice and research, it goes on to suggest and discuss ways in which
translation might be incorporated into materials, curriculum development, and
teacher education.

The book presents translation as:
An aid to language acquisition, pedagogy, and testing.
A contribution to student needs, rights, and empowerment.
An educational insight into relationships between languages and cultures.
