Translation: An Advanced Resource Book for Students

Basil Hatim, American University of Sharjah, UAE and
Jeremy Munday, University of Leeds, UK
Series: Routledge Applied Linguistics
This Advanced Resource Book looks afresh at translation, introducing the subject in theory and practice from a variety of linguistic and cultural angles. Revised and updated throughout, the second edition focuses on this area of intercultural communication through the lens of key topics in both linguistics and cultural studies. Topics covered include: semantics and pragmatics, discourse and gender studies, corpus translation studies, translation and technology. To capture the practical nature of the approaches proposed, a wide range of examples are drawn from English and other languages, including Spanish, Russian and Arabic. Diversity is enhanced by material from a range of sources, genres and text-types, including videogames and advertising. Included are selected extracts from the works of groundbreaking figures in the field that document the theoretical foundations of the discipline. This resource book, written by two experienced teachers, translators and researchers in the field, remains an essential reference for students of Translation Studies and Applied Linguistics.
