Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This ground-breaking encyclopedia explores translation studies, currently developing into a serious field of study, with its own vocabulary, theories, and research. Baker (translation studies, Univ. of Manchester Inst. of Science and Technology) has gathered an impressive group of contributors, including Umberto Eco, Theo Mermnas, Luis Kelly, and Judith Woodsworth, to create an encyclopedia that defines this new discipline. The first part, a dictionary section, explains and defines the vocabulary and concepts in signed entries ranging from two to six pages. Entries include cross references and suggestions for further reading. The second section introduces the translation traditions of 31 cultures, including African, Greek, Chinese, Russian, and French. Each of these lengthy entries includes a history of translation in the culture, theories at work, biographies, and further reading. The complexity of communication, the direction of the academic discipline, and the richness of translation activity are all clearly illustrated. A 55-page bibliography, an introductory overview, and an exhaustive index round out this essential purchase for all academic libraries.?Neal Wyatt, Chesterfield Cty. P.L., VA
Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


This is a landmark publication in the history of translation is impossible to do justice to this Encyclopedia's many merits....comprehensive, clearly-written, well-documented.
–Francisco Gomes de Matos, Language Today

Ground-breaking...essential purchase for all academic libraries.
Library Journal, Nov 1998

A great help to scholars, both for the current information provided as well as for leads to further research. Academic libraries supporting courses in translation studies and related areas will want to add this book to their collection.
Against the Grain, April 1998

Translation...has long deserved this sort of treatment.... Appropriate for any college or university library supporting a program in linguistics, this is vital in those institutions that train students to become translators.
Rettig on Reference, May 1998

Recommended for institutions with graduate programs in translation studies and for professionals and practitioners..

Format: Paperback
If you are doing any research on the subject of translation, this book will be your new Bible! It is written in encyclopedia format, so if you know what you're looking for it is easy to find. If not, the table of contents is really well arranged.

A rare blend of fascinating reading and authoritative instruction. The example translations alone are reason to pick up the book.
