Abstract:

This volume focuses on specialist translation - one of the areas of
translation in greatest demand in our age of globalization. The 16 chapters
deal not only with the classical domains of science and technology, law,
socio-politics and medicine but also with lesser researched areas such as
archeology, geography, nutrigenomics and others. As a whole, the book
achieves a blend of theory and practice. It addresses a variety of issues
such as translation strategy based on text type and purpose, intercultural
transfer and quality assessment, as well as textual and terminological
issues in bilingual and multilingual settings, including international
organizations and the European Union. Today translation competence
presupposes multidisciplinary skills. Whereas some chapters analyze the
linguistic features of special-purpose texts and their function in
specialized communication, others show how specialized translation has
changed as a result of globalization and how advances in technology have
altered terminology research and translation processing.
