Book Description

Translation, Second Edition introduces the theory and practice of translation from a variety of linguistic and cultural angles, and has been revised and updated to feature:

  • a study of translation through the lens of key topics in linguistics such as semantics, functional linguistics, corpus and cognitive linguistics, discourse analysis, gender studies and postcolonialism;
  • a wide range of examples from other languages, including French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Arabic, with English back-translations to assist comprehension;
  • material from a variety of sources, genres and text-types, such as advertisements, religious texts, reports for international organizations, videogames, literary and technical texts;
  • influential readings from the key names in the discipline, including Jean-Paul Vinay and Jean Darbelnet, Eugene Nida, Werner Koller and Ernst-August Gutt, and contains new readings from Mona Baker, Michael Cronin, Kim Grego, Miguel A. Jiménez-Crespo, Kevin Gary Smith, Harald Martin Olk, Carmen Mangiron and Minako O’Hagan.
