Book Description

First published in 2002. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.


`For those with a passing knowledge of MT and who would like an overview of what is happening in the field this book is useful both as a reminder of the problems still unsolved and as an indicator of current research directions.' - Computers Educ. Vol 20 No 3

`The difficulty with publishing an introductory work is divining the level of knowledge of the suject being addressed that the potential reader is likely to have...I believe John Newton has got it just right. His Introduction and Overview, the first chapter of the book, would serve as a valuable reference in its own right... His list of contributors reads like a Who's Who....This book would be an excellent reference for anyone wishing to keep abreast of a subject that dates very rapidly.' - Bob Clark, Language International

`The book gives us some real achievements and much hard thinking, rather than a bunch of empty promises....This book gives many examples of the best current thinking and the main lines of research: all credit to the editor and contributors.' - Times Higher

"...essential `state-of-the-art' reading for anyone interested in translation." - The Linguist

`... a mine of information for anyone new to the field.' - Doug Thompson, ReCall

`a very readable introduction to the latest developments in the application of computers to translation work' - Doug Thompson, ReCall
