Translator and Interpreter Training Reviews

This comprehensive volume comprises a number of excellent contributions on a variety of quite specific but always exemplary topics related to translator education, sandwiched between highly thought-provoking seminal chapters by Kearns and Seguinot. This is a compilation of first-rate scholarly work in translation studies by both well-established and up-and-coming researchers. The panoply of innovative research methods introduced and the disparate yet smoothly interwoven facets of translation studies discussed make this volume an indispensable compendium for anyone interested in state-of-the-art research in translator education--Sanford Lakoff
"Although the underlying subject of the papers is that of translator (and interpreter) training, they explore a fascinating range of different types of translation and different types of translation skills, which will certainly be of interest to anyone working in the field of Translation Studies today ... a collection of papers which set out to encourage trainers and researchers to break down the boundaries of what John Kearns calls the "academic/vocational dichotomy" and to question the ideology which has hitherto governed curricular planning in the field of Translation Studies. The volume presents a selection of well-researched and cogently argued papers which make a valuable contribution to current thinking around Translation, a discipline which emerges as broader and more far reaching than might otherwise have been imagined." The Journal of Specialised Translation
