Book Information


Title: In Other Words
Subtitle: A Coursebook on Translation, 2nd Edition
Written By: Mona Baker

This best-selling textbook written by Mona Baker, a leading international

scientific translation, oral interpreting, website translation, and news/media

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