Abstract:

Web localization is a cognitive, textual, communicative and technological
process by which interactive web texts are modified to be used by audiences in
different sociolinguistic contexts.

Translation and Web Localization provides an in-depth and comprehensive
overview into this emerging field of study. The book covers the key areas and
main theoretical and practical approaches of the subject, rather than a step
by step practical guide. Topics covered include the often controversial
definition of localization, how the process develops, what constitutes a text
in this process, digital genre theory and its implications, and how to conduct
research or training in this field.

The book concludes with a look into the dynamic nature of web localization and
the forces, such as crowdsourcing, that are reshaping web localization and
translation as we know it.

In light of the deep changes brought by the Internet, Translation and Web
Localization is an indispensable book for researchers, postgraduate and
advanced undergraduate students of translation studies, as well as
practitioners and researchers in related fields such as computational
linguistics, applied linguistics, Internet linguistics, digital genre theory
and web development.
