Title: Translation: Theory and Practice in Dialogue
Edited By: Antoinette Fawcett
Karla L. Guadarrama García
Rebecca Hyde Parker
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=133568&SearchType=Basic
Series Title: Continuum Studies in Translation
Description:

This exciting new book explores the present relevance of translation theory
to practice.

A range of perspectives provides both current theoretical insights into the
relevance of theory to translation and also offers first-hand experiences
of applying appropriate strategies and methods to the practice and
description of translation. The individual chapters in the book explore
theoretical pronouncements and practical observations grouped in topics
that include theory and creativity, translation and its relation with
linguistics, gender issues and more. The book features four parts: it
firstly deals with how theories from both within translation studies and
from other disciplines can contribute to our understanding of the practice
of translation; secondly, how theory can be reconceptualized from examining
translation in practice; thirdly reconceptualizing practice from theory;
and finally Eastern European and Asian perspectives of how translation
theory and practice inform one another. The chapters all show examples from
theoretical and practical as well as pedagogical issues ensuring appeal for
a wide readership.

This book will appeal to advanced level students, researchers and academics
in translation studies.

"This wide-ranging collection of essays by translation scholars and
practioners will give a welcome push to the long-stalled debate in
Translation Studies over the relationship between theory and practice. The
authors, working in various language pairs and across historical periods,
move fluently from concrete example to abstraction, and Kirsten Malmkjoer’s
powerful call for a philosophy of translation ends the volume with a bang."
Brian James Baer, Professor of Russian Translation, Founding editor,
