Subtitle: A Practical Guide
Written By: Tengku Sepora Tengku Mahadi
Helia Vaezian
Mahmoud Akbari
Series Title: Series: Linguistic Insights. Volume 120
Description:

Corpora are among the hottest issues in translation studies affecting both
pure and applied realms of the discipline. As for pure translation studies,
corpora have done their part through contributions to the studies on
translational language and translation universals. Yet, their recent contribution
is within the borders of applied translation studies, i.e. translator training and
translation aids. The former is the major focus of the present book.
The present book in fact aims at providing readers with comprehensive
information about corpora in translation studies in general, and corpora in
translator education in particular. It further offers researchers and
practitioners a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of studies done on
corpora in translator education and provides a rich source of information on
pros and cons of using different types of corpora as translation aids in the
context of translation classrooms.

Contents: An Introduction to Corpus Linguistics - Corpora and Translation
Studies - What Information Corpora Offer to Translators? - Corpora and
Student Translators - Corpora and Translation Teachers.
