    of the problem of the existing misconceptions concerning different kinds of translation and interpreting is the fact that the terminological apparatus of translation studies is still in a state of flux The overarching aim of this book is to clarify some important aspects of translation theory and practice in order to make translating and evaluating translations more transparent and more widely understood Part I of the book considers some topical issues of translation theory Part II examines the challenges involved in attaining the level of expert professionalism in translation from the perspective of expertise studies Although the book s focus is on written literary translation the issues discussed are relevant to other kinds of translation including interpretation oral translation The book will be interesting and useful not only for students of Russian to English and English to Russian translation but also for beginning and practicing translators irrespective of their working languages back to bookbeat index top CLAS Navigation About CLAS Academic Units News and Events Academic Advising Research CLAS Administration Outreach Alumni and Giving CLAS Home Search This Web Site UF Web with Google UF Phonebook CLAS Portals Alumni Faculty Staff Parents Students College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 2014

    translation has barely scratched the surface The research in this field is shared largely by scholars in communication and translation studies often without knowledge of each other or access to their respective methods of scholarship This collection works to rectify this lack of communication by bringing such scholars together and creating a context for a theoretical discussion of the entire emerging field of Media and Translation with a preference for theoretical work rather than case studies on translation and communications of various forms and through various media Reviews In addition to shedding new light on established forms of media translation this volume presents research on more recent features of the multilingual media landscape such as live subtitling with speech recognition promotional trailers and fan generated spin offs With its broad cultural scope and its striking combination of aesthetic linguistic political socio economic and technological perspectives the book takes the reader on an exciting intellectual adventure Media and Translation should appeal to a broad readership in the Humanities and the Social Sciences generally and to the Media Studies and Translation Studies communities in particular convincingly demonstrating how much ground they share in today s intensely globalised media dominated and multilingual world Dirk Delabastita Professor of English Literature and Literary Theory University of Namur Belgium and Research Fellow K U Leuven Belgium In a babel of disciplinary voices this book provides a thoughtful selection of essays that evidence the complexity of media translation and the wide variety of approaches it inspires While there is a practical thread running through the whole book the emphasis here is on understanding and theorizing making it an essential contribution to translation studies Abé Markus Nornes Department Chair of Screen Arts and Cultures and Professor of Asian Cinema University of Michigan USA back to bookbeat index top
