Product Description

Review

'The second edition of this authoritative encyclopedia has been extensively revised and augmented by over 100 worldwide contributors to reflect the evolving interests and concerns of scholars and practitioners in the field...The volume's final comprehensive bibliography and index invaluably supplement this work's rich contents.' - K. Rosneck, University of Wisconsin--Madison, Choice, June 2009

'The editors are to be congratulated for once again bringing together such a distinguished group of scholars and such a wide range of material. There simply is no other single volume that offers such a panoramic view of the field or such a diverse range of contributors... As a general reference work and introduction to the field, it is without equal.' - Linguist List

"[T]he Routledge Encyclopedia of Translation Studies, edited by Mona Baker and Gabriela Saldanha, is an informative and easy-to-read encyclopedia which looks at translation studies in its full multidisciplinary character while avoiding an exclusively Eurocentric perspective." - Dimitra Anastasiou, Mach Translat (2012) 26:271–275

This book is essential for anyone doing T&I at post-grad level and above. I found it most useful for all the modules I completed on my T&I MA course. These included specialised translation, subtitle translation, literary translation, poetry translation and translation studies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great source for translation students and users of translation services 23 Feb. 2012
By vivayoyis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This review is for the 2nd edition. Baker and Saldanha put a lot of work into this informative work. This is a great source for students of translation who are just starting out, or are looking at a place to begin researching, as well as for industry professionals who simply want to add it to their library collection. The first half of the book is an encyclopedia of translation terms and the second half is dedicated to the history and traditions of translation in over 30 countries. I'm impressed by how they managed to take so much information and squeeze it into one volume while making sure not to lose the most important details. It is also simple enough to understand for non-industry professionals who use translation services and who want explanations of the processes involved in the language industry or to help them understand what to look for when hiring translation services.
