Teaching Translation and Interpreting: Challenges and Practices
Editor: Łukasz Bogucki
Date Of Publication: Nov 2010
In a world increasingly dependent on translation and localisation, translator and interpreter training is becoming one of the more dynamic areas in academic exchanges. Teaching Translation and Interpreting: Challenges and Practices strives to meet the growing interest in this field. The book offers a general and up-to-date overview of current trends in teaching translation at university level. The innovative and exciting articles offer a comprehensive selection of topics for discussion and reflection that will appeal to students, lecturers, researchers and professionals alike. Though the research projects described in the essays are to some extent rooted in the Polish reality, their conclusions are largely universal and applicable worldwide.
