Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Theories of Translation
Written By: Jenny Williams
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?pid=365626
Series Title: Palgrave Textbooks in Translating and Interpreting
Description:

Translation theories are not a trivial matter for they underpin the choices of decision-makers worldwide: from media moguls who decide which foreign news items to broadcast, to military commanders who recruit interpreters to interface with local people in war zones. Theories of Translation deals with such subjective theories as well as more formal ones. It also includes theoretical perspectives on current technological developments, such as user-generated translation. The book is aimed at final-year undergraduate and postgraduate students but will also be of interest to teachers and researchers in Translation Studies and related fields as well as to practising translators who wish to keep abreast of theoretical debates of relevance to the profession. This wide-ranging overview of the most important Translation theories to have emerged in the last 50 years in Europe and beyond provides new perspectives on a range of intercultural connections in a globalized world.
