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

A range of perspectives provides both current theoretical insights into therelevance of theory to translation and also offers first-hand experiencesof applying appropriate strategies and methods to the practice anddescription of translation. The individual chapters in the book exploretheoretical pronouncements and practical observations grouped in topicsthat include theory and creativity, translation and its relation withlinguistics, gender issues and more. The book features four parts: itfirstly deals with how theories from both within translation studies andfrom other disciplines can contribute to our understanding of the practiceof translation; secondly, how theory can be reconceptualized from examiningtranslation in practice; thirdly reconceptualizing practice from theory;and finally Eastern European and Asian perspectives of how translationtheory and practice inform one another. The chapters all show examples fromtheoretical and practical as well as pedagogical issues ensuring appeal fora wide readership.

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

"This wide-ranging collection of essays by translation scholars andpractioners will give a welcome push to the long-stalled debate inTranslation Studies over the relationship between theory and practice. Theauthors, working in various language pairs and across historical periods,move fluently from concrete example to abstraction, and Kirsten Malmkjoer'spowerful call for a philosophy of translation ends the volume with a bang."Brian James Baer, Professor of Russian Translation, Founding editor,Translation and Interpreting Studies (TIS), Kent State University, USA
