Book Description

Research into Translation and Training in Arab Academic Institutions provides insights into the current issues and challenges facing in-service and trainee Arabic translators and interpreters, both professionally and academically.

This book addresses translators’ status, roles, and structures. It also provides Arab perspectives on translation and translation training, written by scholars representing academic institutions across the Arab World. Themes in this collection include training terminologists on managing, promoting and marketing terms; corpora and translation teaching in the Arab World; use of translation technologies; translators’ training and translators’ methodologies and assessment of translators’ competence; research on translator training; and the status quo of undergraduate translation programs in a sample of five Arab universities.

A valuable resource for students, professionals and scholars of Arabic translation and interpreting.
