The Routledge Encyclopedia of Translation Technology provides a state-of-the art survey of the field of computer-assisted translation. It is the first definitive reference to provide a comprehensive overview of the general, regional and topical aspects of this increasingly significant area of study.
The Encyclopedia is divided into three parts:
The Routledge Encyclopedia of Translation Technology draws on the expertise of over fifty contributors from around the world and an international panel of consultant editors to provide a selection of articles on the most pertinent topics in the discipline. All the articles are self-contained, extensively cross-referenced, and include useful and up-to-date references and information for further reading.
It will be an invaluable reference work for anyone with a professional or academic interest in the subject.
"It is unique in that it provides both a truly encyclopedic overview of the field of computer-assisted translation and an in-depth discussion of the various aspects of this young discipline by some of the best-known experts in each of the disciplines this book covers. I was particularly pleased by the fact that so much emphasis was placed on teaching translation technology, which clearly is an area that deserves this type of attention." Uwe Muegge, Monterey Institute of International Studies, USA.
"This is an immensely useful compendium of information about the history, techniques and world-wide distribution of translation technologies over the last 70 years. The articles are authored by international specialists whose wide-ranging expertise is brought together here for the first time. The individual articles are almost without exception at the cutting edge of knowledge, so will be of value to researchers and other specialists as well as students… Part Two (National and Regional Developments) is particularly innovative and valuable in setting translation technology in its social and political context in different societies around the world." Andrew Rothwell, Swansea University, UK.
"With fifty different contributors, The Routledge Encyclopedia of Translation Technology provides a diverse set of perspectives on this growing field." - Onna Adele Nelson, University of California, Santa Barbara, The LINGUIST List
