Book Information

   

Title: Translation and Technology
Written By: Chiew Kin Quah
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403918325
Series Title: Palgrave Textbooks in Translating and Interpreting
Description:

Chiew Kin Quah draws on years of academic and professional experience to
provide an account of translation technology, its applications and
capabilities. Major developments from North America, Europe and Asia are
described, including developments in uses and users of the technology. The
book is essential for students on translating courses and professional
translators wishing to be brought up-to-date or to prepare for a new
aspect of their work. With its emphasis on the role of the translator both
as user of and developer of these new tools, needing to understand both
the process of design and the human aspects of translating, it is
complementary to other books which concentrate on the computational and
technical processing aspects of the systems.


'A clear and comprehensive introduction to a complex and fast-moving field
which is central to the activity of translation in the 21st century. This
up-to-date account is required reading for trainees, practitioners and
theorists.' - Professor Jenny Williams, Head of the School of Applied
Language and Intercultural Studies, Dublin City University, Republic of
Ireland
