Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Book Information


Title: Translation in Theorie und Praxis
Edited By: Vlasta Kucis
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?262903
Series Title: Deutsch als Fremdsprache in der Diskussion

Der Band befasst sich mit der Interdisziplinarität der Translationswissenschaft in Theorie und Praxis und behandelt eine breite Palette von aktuellen translatorischen Fragen aus theoretischer, didaktischer, fachsprachiger, literarischer und praktischer Perspektive, wobei in sechs Sektionen innovativ theoretische Ansätze wie auch empirisch gestützte Beiträge präsentiert werden.

«Der Sammelband bietet einen vor allem aufgrund seiner Vielfalt interessanten Einblick in den Stand der translationswissenschaftlichen Forschung und die Translationsdidaktik, wie sie derzeit an den involvierten Universitäten vor allem im ost- und südosteuropäischen Raum betrieben wird, in denen die Translationswissenschaft erst allmählich Fuß fasst und sich als eigene Disziplin zu formieren scheint. Länder, in denen dieser Prozess der Etablierung der Translationswissenschaft bereits relativ weit gediehen ist, sind durch arrivierte Forscher vertreten.»
(Prof. Dr. Erich Prunč, Universität Graz)
