The ability to communicate with people from diverse cultural backgrounds is becoming increasingly important. Many employers consider intercultural competence to be a key criterion for selecting qualified candidates. The authors discuss practical approaches for designing and conducting intercultural trainings, methodology, and evaluation procedures based on current research. They explore the intercultural factor within corporations particularly as it relates to human resource development, negotiating, dealing with conflict, and project management. Thoughts on developing an overall strategy for interculturality round off this handbook.

Multiculturalismo en la Commonwealth británica

Ashcroft, R. T. and M. Bevir. [e-Book] Multiculturalism in the British Commonwealth. Berkeley, University of California Press, 2019

Texto completo

Cultural diversity raises pressing issues for both political theory and practice. The remaking of the world since 1945 has led to increased demographic diversity within many states, and greater acknowledgment of its worth. “Multiculturalism” refers to the political, legal and philosophical strategies which emerged to accommodate this newfound social diversity, and the accompanying public debates. Each chapter explores particular state responses to cultural diversity, utilizing various disciplinary approaches but addressing common questions: What is “multiculturalism,” and why did it come about? What dilemmas has it posed for liberal-democratic governance? How have these been responded to in theory and practice, and are the different responses adequate? Are there alternative approaches to cultural diversity that have been overlooked? Issues covered include immigration, national minorities, indigenous peoples, nation-state building, liberal-democratic citizenship, constitutionalism, nationalism, group politics, political economy, secularism, globalization, decolonization, and the relationship between social theory and practice. The volume situates modern multiculturalism in its national, international and historical contexts, tracing the historical roots of present dilemmas to the intertwined legacies of imperialism and liberalism. It thereby shows that multiculturalism has implications which stretch beyond its current formulations in both public and academic discourse, casting doubt on basic assumptions behind modern liberal democracy, and even on the viability of the nation-state in its present form. The Editors’ overall conclusion is that reorganizing governance to be more polycentric in structure, and pluralist in orientation, would be a fruitful response to multiculturalism in both theory and practice.

La traducción científico-técnica y la terminología en la sociedad de la información

Alcina Caudet y Silvia Gamero Pérez (eds.) La traducción científico-técnica y la terminología en la sociedad de la información Castelló de la Plana : Publicacions de la Universitat Jaume, D.L. 2002

Texto completo

 

La evolución de la sociedad hacia un modelo cada vez mas globalizado y plurilingüe se ha convertida en un proceso irremisible. Si a esta le añadimos la creciente implantación de las nuevas tecnologías, que en la actualidad se han incorporada practicamente a todos los sectores de actividad humana, es innegable que estamos ya inmersos en lo que se ha dada en llamar la sociedad de la información.

En este contexto, la traducción cientifico-técnica juega un pape! muy destacada. No sólo  facilita el intercambio de información a escala internacional, si no que constituye uno de los pilares básicos del comercio mundial, en una economía dominada por las empresas transnacionales. Piénsese en el ingente volumen de textos generados por la traducción de documentos de uso industrial, de toda tipa de documentación que acompaña a los productos, de paginas web, de manuales de software y de textos técnicos publicitarios. Por otra parte, la demanda de diccionarios especializados, indispensables para el trabajo del traductor, implica la necesidad de crear mas recursos terminológicos, diseñar nuevas herramientas y explotar los datos mediante nuevas estrategias. Toda ella, unida al desarrollo de las tecnologías de la información y de la comunicación (TIC) supone un apoyo a la labor del traductor y del terminólogo pero, a su vez, exige de ellos nuevas competencias.

 

 

 

Manual de traducción inglés-español de protocolos de ensayos clínicos

Mugüerza, Pablo. Manual de traducción inglés-español de protocolos de ensayos clínicos. 2a. ed. Barcelona: Fundación Dr. Antonio Esteve, 2018

Texto completo

 

Las pruebas científicas de la eficacia y la inocuidad de los tratamientos –lo que en inglés se conoce por evidence– constituyen el bastión de la práctica médica actual y han  desplazado a la intuición, la mera observación, el empirismo y la experiencia personales como bases de la conducta clínica. En el caso de los tratamientos farmacológicos, estas pruebas se generan mediante estudios diseñados para reducir a un mínimo la influencia de la subjetividad y el azar en los resultados.

El inglés tiene primacía en los grandes laboratorios multinacionales, que producen toda su documentación en ese idioma. Sin embargo, por cuestiones de costo y conveniencia, estas empresas a menudo realizan ensayos clínicos en países donde no se habla inglés. Los involucrados no siempre entienden el inglés, o al menos no en la medida necesaria para asimilar cabalmente el contenido del documento. De esta manera, los países de habla española se enfrentan a la necesidad de traducir los protocolos antes de presentarlos a los comités revisores, en algunos casos en acatamiento de normativas nacionales.

Si a toda traducción cabe exigirle rigor, precisión y claridad, estos atributos cobran aún más relevancia tratándose del protocolo de un ensayo clínico. Un error de traducción en un protocolo puede acarrear consecuencias graves, y hasta poner en peligro la vida de las personas estudiadas. No es exagerado, por tanto, afirmar que en cierto sentido el traductor de un ensayo debería también regirse por una norma deontológica de los médicos: ante todo, no hacer daño.

Además, están preparados para adaptarse a los imprevistos que pueden surgir cuando se enfrentan a una charla que están oyendo por primera vez y disponen de multitud de recursos. Las autoras de esta guía recomiendan trabajar estrechamente con ellos para facilitar su trabajo.

Inglés de Barco “Ship English”: el discurso de los marineros en el Caribe colonial

Delgado, S. (2019). [e-Book] Ship English: Sailors’ speech in the early colonial
Caribbean
, Knowledge Unlatched, 2019

Texto completo

This book presents evidence that Ship English of the early Atlantic colonial period was a distinct variety with characteristic features. It is motivated by the recognition that late-seventeenth and early-eighteenth century sailors’ speech was potentially an influential variety in nascent creoles and English varieties of the Caribbean, yet few academic studies have attempted to define the characteristics of this speech. Therefore, the two principal aims of this study were, firstly, to outline the socio-demographics of the maritime communities and examine how variant linguistic features may have developed and spread among these communities, and, secondly, to generate baseline data on the characteristic features of Ship English. The newly-identified characteristics of Ship English detailed here may now serve as an entry point for scholars to integrate this language variety into the discourse on dialect variation in Early Modern English period and the theories on pidgin and creole genesis.

Texto completo

Bilingual Europe presents to the reader a Europe that for a long time was ‘multilingual’: besides the vernacular languages Latin played an important role. Even ‘nationalistic’ treatises could be written in Latin. Until deep into the 18th century scientific works were written in it. It is still an official language of the Roman Catholic Church. But why did authors choose for Latin or for their native tongue? In the case of bilingual authors, what made them choose either language, and what implications did that have? What interactions existed between the two? Contributors include Jan Bloemendal, Wiep van Bunge, H. Floris Cohen, Arjan C. van Dixhoorn, Guillaume van Gemert, Joep T. Leerssen, Ingrid Rowland, Arie Schippers, Eva Del Soldato, Demmy Verbeke, Françoise Waquet, and Ari H. Wesseling.

Globalización y culturas “minoritarias

Texto completo

Globalization and “Minority” Cultures: The Role of “Minor” Cultural Groups in Shaping Our Global Future is a collective work which brings to the forefront of global studies new perspectives on the relationship between globalization and the experiences of cultural minorities worldwide. These perspectives are crucial to the process of questioning contemporary global values and practices, and contribute to current debates in a variety of fields (politics, education, culture, the economy, etc.) on the causes, consequences and future of globalization. The book develops new theories and practices of transculturality that link different theoretical and cultural spheres (“minor” and “dominant”) in order to formulate new discussions and propositions about appropriate responses to give in defiance of the adverse effects of globalization.
