Product description

Synopsis

This is the third revised edition of this text written for those considering a career in translation. It is directed at those studying languages and those who already have a language capability but who are considering a career change. It considers the practical aspects of the translation profession and provides a complement to language teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

About the Author

Geoffrey Samuelsson-Brown is a translator with more than 30 years experience in the profession. He has taught translation at the University of Surrey and has given papers at national and international conferences. He developed from working as a freelance to managing a significant translation company. His career as a translator has turned full circle and, after selling his translation company, he returned to the creativity of working as a freelance again. While the art of translation demands many skills, the author continued his personal development and completed a Master of Business Administration degree in Strategic Management, International Enterprise and a management research project entitled "Skills Auditing in Small to Medium-sized Enterprises".
