Book Description

At a time when millions travel around the planet – some by choice, some driven by economic or political exile – translation of the written and spoken word is of ever increasing importance. This guide presents readers with an accessible and engaging introduction to the valuable position translation holds within literature and society.



Leading translation theorist Susan Bassnett traces the history of translation, examining the ways translation is currently utilized as a burgeoning interdisciplinary activity and extending her analysis into developing areas such as developing technologies and new media forms.


Translation Studies, fourth edition displays the importance of translation across disciplines, and is essential reading for students and scholars of translation, literary studies, globalisation studies and ancient and modern languages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful for its brevity - but not great 11 Mar. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an introduction to translation stidues this is a reasonable and short read. Unfortunately the author's commentaries are exclusively from the standpoint of literary translation, especially of poetry, which leads IMO to a lack of balance in relation to the translator's everyday work. The text is also peppered with references to -isms of various sorts. (I switched off in the places where it spoke about the relation of translation to post-colonialism - there's cultural bias for you!) These tend to make it come across as rather pretentious to those whose approach to linguistics has been via a more scientific route. Munday's introuction to translation Studies is IMO much better.
