Specialized translation : Theoretical issues, operational perspectives

41NfkFUoj2L._SS500_Author : Kim Grego

Specialized translation : Theoretical issues, operational perspectives , written by Kim Grego, draws largely on considerations and perspectives from various areas in Applied Linguistics, especially Translation Studies and English for Specific Purposes, but also studies on genres and discourse. Starting with a recapitulation of Translation Studies to this day, the book proposes an operational interpretation of the translating phenomenon, before going on to describe and analyse the specificity of specialised translation. Finally, it discusses the recent changes undergone by specialised discourse in the web age, and their influence on the suggested view of translation as a product, a process and a practice.
