We are not meant to notice the translators and interpreters around us: if they do their job well they should be invisible. Usually we only hear about them when they do their job badly: for instance through translation bloopers or diplomatic interpreting mistakes. Found in Translation explains this professional world and how it relates so profoundly to how we communicate today. The short pieces that make up the book are vivid and delightful. It's well written and flows smoothly. I have already bought copies to give as gifts; that's my highest recommendation.
