Description:

Please note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text. Acclaimed, when it first appeared, as a seminal work – a groundbreaking book that was both informative and highly readable – "Translators through History" is being released in a new edition, substantially revised and expanded by Judith Woodsworth. Translators have played a key role in intellectual exchange through the ages and across borders. This account of how they have contributed to the development of languages, the emergence of literatures, the dissemination of knowledge and the spread of values tells the story of world culture itself. Content has been updated, new elements introduced and recent directions in translation scholarship incorporated, providing fresh insights and a more nuanced view of past events. The bibliography contains over 100 new titles and illustrations have been refreshed and enhanced. An invaluable tool for students, scholars and professionals in the field of translation, the latest version of "Translators through History" remains a vital resource for researchers in other disciplines and a fascinating read for the wider public.
