Translating Texts : An Introductory Coursebook on Translation and Text Formation, Hardback Book

Translating Texts : An Introductory Coursebook on Translation and Text Formation Hardback

Edited by Brian James (Kent State University, USA) Baer, Christopher D. (Walsh University, USA) Mellinger


Clear and accessible, this textbook provides a step-by-step guide to textual analysis for beginning translators and translation students.

Covering a variety of text types, including business letters, recipes, and museum guides in six languages (Chinese, English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish), this book presents authentic, research-based materials to support translation among any of these languages. Translating Texts will provide beginning translators with greater text awareness, a critical skill for professional translators.

Including discussions of the key theoretical texts underlying this text-centred approach to translation and sample rubrics for (self) assessment, this coursebook also provides easy instructions for creating additional corpora for other text types and in other languages. Ideal for both language-neutral and language-specific classroom settings, this is an essential text for undergraduate and graduate-level programs in modern languages and translation.
