Professor Tim Connell’s ‘Recommended Read’:
Papers in Translation Studies
Editor: Sattar Izwaini.
This book presents cutting-edge research in translation studies, offering stimulating discussions and fresh perspectives on translation theory and practice, and suggests ways of dealing with translation problems.
“Papers in Translation Studies is a good example of the range of titles on offer from Cambridge Scholars Publishing. It is up-to-date in the field, covers a wide range of topics and offers some detailed analysis of key issues but in such a way that they will still be of interest to people interested in translation. There is certainly something there for everyone as it covers topics such as the role of ideology in translation (one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter); in this Shakespeare year there is an analysis of Hamlet in Turkish; translation policies (a key issue in a number of European countries, let alone worldwide) are considered in the light of the experience of Wales; the section on translator training will be of value to lecturers; and the subject of new technologies as applied to translation is a topic of endless variety, though culinary terms in Brazil is probably a first for subject matter!”
