Book Description

2 Dec 2004 041528306X 978-0415283069 New Ed

Routledge Applied Linguistics is a series of comprehensive textbooks, providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced study in the core areas of English language and Applied Linguistics.

Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections, enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline.

  • Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends readers’ techniques of analysis through practical application.
  • Section B, Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and discusses their contribution to the field.
  • Section C, Exploration, builds on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own research responses.

Throughout the book, topics are revisited, extended, interwoven and deconstructed, with the reader’s understanding strengthened by tasks and follow-up questions. 


  • examines the theory and practice of translation from a variety of linguistic and cultural angles, including semantics, functional linguistics, corpus and cognitive linguistics, discourse analysis, gender studies and postcolonialism
  • draws on a wide range of languages, including French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Arabic
  • explores material from a variety of sources, such as the Internet, advertisements, religious texts, literary and technical texts
  • gathers together influential readings from the key names in the discipline, including James S. Holmes, George Steiner, Vinay and Darbelnet, Eugene Nida, Werner Koller and Ernst-August Gutt.

Written by experienced teachers and researchers in the field, Translation: An Advanced Resource Book is an essential textbook for students and researchers of English language and Applied Linguistics.

Product Description


'To complement and enrich this truly innovative advanced resource book, there is a very useful website where students can browse in search of further text samples, translations, and updated information on developments and events pertaining to the discipline of Translation Studies.' The Linguist List

'Fills a space that I'm sure many translation academics feel needs to be filled ... This book will help to define and shape translation pedagogy for the next few years. In brief, I see it as Mona Baker's In Other Words ten years on.' - Stuart Campbell, University of Western Sydney

'This truly comprehensive work is doubly innovative: it goes beyond the abstract presentation of translation issues and concepts and it is interactive, containing many exercises and readings to help readers explore all aspects of translation theory and improve their translation skills. Add to this the use of English back translation ... and you have a resource that is destined to enjoy broad appeal and become a primary textbook for undergraduate and graduate programs in translation, modern languages and linguistics.' - Malcolm Williams, University of Ottawa, Canada

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST 19 May 2008
It is one of the most interesting books in translation. Anyne who's interested in translation should have this book. One of the beautiful things in this books is the easy way in which difficut concepts are presented. Not one of the books you'd feel bored after reading the first chapters. The book itself is very beautiful, i mean the font,.....etc.
The examples are from different languages including French, Arabic, English..
Please, don't hestitat. Read it before you read 'Transltor and Discourse', Otherwise you wont understand a word!
