Translators want to take their readers into account, but traditional translation theory does not offer much advice on how to do that. User-Centered Translation (UCT) offers practical tools and methods to help empower translators to act for their readers. This book will help readers to:

-Create mental models such as personas
-Test translations with usability testing methods
-Carry out reception research

Including assignments, case studies and real-life scenarios ranging from the translation of user instructions and EU texts to literary and audiovisual translation, this is an essential guide for students, translators and researchers.

Linguistic Field(s): Translation

Written In: English (eng)
