Series Title: Bloomsbury Advances in Translation
Description:

This is a collection of leading research within corpus-based translation studies (CTS). CTS is now recognized as a major paradigm that has transformed analysis within the discipline of translation studies. It can be defined as the use of corpus linguistic technologies to inform and elucidate the translation process, something that is increasingly accessible through advances in computer technology.

The book pulls together a wide range of perspectives from respected authors in the field. All the chapters deal with the implementation of the basic concepts and methodologies, providing the reader with practical tools for their own research. The book addresses key issues in corpus analysis, including online corpora and corpus construction, and covers both translation and interpreting. The authors look at various languages and utilize a variety of approaches, qualitative and quantitative, reflecting the breadth of the field and providing many valuable examples of the methodology at work.

“This volume achieves a rare balance of theory and practice, centre and periphery, past and future, bringing together some of the best-known names in corpus-based translation studies and making a perfect starting point for new-comers to the field, as well as essential reading for those already part of it.” – Silvia Bernardini, Associate Professor, Language and Translation, University of Bologna, Italy,
