Translation: A Multidisciplinary Approach
provides readers with exciting new insights into the cross-linguistic and cross-cultural practice of translation - a field of rapidly growing international importance. World-renowned experts address the subject from a variety of different perspectives, viewing translation as social action and intercultural communication, as a phenomenon of languages in contact and as a socio-cognitive process. The volume presents up-to-date discussions of important issues such as the evaluation of translations, the question of ethics in translation, translation as re-narration, literary translation, the role of corpora and New Media in translation, and translation in the context of language learning and teaching.
