This best-selling textbook written by Mona Baker, a leading international
figure in translation studies, is the essential coursebook for any student
studying in this field. Assuming no knowledge of foreign languages, "In Other
Words" offers both a practical and theoretical guide to translation studies, and
provides an important foundation for training professional translators.

the field and new features include:
*A new chapter that addresses issues of ethics and ideology, in response to
increased pressures on translators and interpreters to demonstrate
accountability and awareness of the social impact of their decisions.
*Examples and exercises from new genres such as audiovisual translation,
scientific translation, oral interpreting, website translation, and news/media
*New project-driven exercises designed to support MA dissertation work
*Updated references and further reading.
