Written By: Mona Baker
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415467544/
Description:

This best-selling textbook written by Mona Baker, a leading international
figure in translation studies, is the essential coursebook for any student
studying in this field. Assuming no knowledge of foreign languages, "In Other
Words" offers both a practical and theoretical guide to translation studies, and
provides an important foundation for training professional translators.

The second edition has been fully revised to reflect recent developments in
the field and new features include:

*A new chapter that addresses issues of ethics and ideology, in response to
increased pressures on translators and interpreters to demonstrate
accountability and awareness of the social impact of their decisions.

*Examples and exercises from new genres such as audiovisual translation,
scientific translation, oral interpreting, website translation, and news/media
translation.

*New project-driven exercises designed to support MA dissertation work

*Updated references and further reading.
