The Translation Studies Reader provides a definitive survey of the most important and influential developments in translation theory and research, with an emphasis on twentieth-century developments.

The third edition of this classic reader has been fully revised and updated and adds a new section: 2000 and beyond , which includes five new readings.

Edited by Stephanie Schwerter and Jennifer K. Dick, "Transmissibility and Cultural Transfer: Dimensions of Translation in the Humanities" brings together monumental voices in the social sciences -- such as Jean-Ren? Ladmiral from Paris and Peter Caws from Washington DC -- to begin to address the Humanities' specific issues with and debt to translation. Calling for a re-examination of how translations are read, critiqued, and taught in Philosophy, History, Political Science, and Sociology departments, this book provides tools for reflection, bases for reconsideration of given translations, and historical observations on how thought has been shaped across national borders.
The volume ends with four case studies -- examples from auto-translation in postcolonial literature, cultural issues of translation in Chinese-language cinema, negotiating meaning between linguistically and culturally different audiences in the United States and Lebanon, to verbal-visual questions of translation in marketing to German and French clients. All in all, this book is a comprehensive, compact survey of the cultural and linguistic translation and transmission issues in the social sciences today. "Transmissibility and Cultural Transfer: Dimensions of Translation in the Humanities" is illuminating and informative.
The first practical study of its kind, Lexical Conflict presents a taxonomy of cross-linguistic lexical differences, with thorough discussion of zero equivalence, multiple equivalence and partial equivalence across languages. Illustrated with numerous examples taken from over one hundred world languages, this work is an exhaustive exploration of cross-linguistic and cross-cultural differences, presenting guidelines and solutions for the lexicographic treatment of these differences. The text combines theoretical and applied linguistic perspectives to create an essential guide for students, researchers and practitioners in linguistics, anthropology, cross-cultural psychology, translation, interpretation and international marketing.
This book investigates issues of translation and survival in diasporic and transcultural literature, combining Chinese and Western theories of translation to discuss the centrifugal and centripetal forces that are inherent in diasporic Chinese writers. Cutting across philosophy, semiotics, translation studies and diasporic writing, it the book tackles the complexity of translation as a key tool to re-read the dynamics of Sino-Anglo literary encounters that reset East-West parameters. Focusing on a range of specialized areas of cultural translation sand China-related writings, this book is a key read for scholars of translation and cross-cultural writings, ethnic studies, postcolonial studies, American and Australian literature studies, and global Chinese literature studies.
