Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Robinson's book is original and stimulating, and I suspect it will remain a provocative landmark in its field for some time to come."--Steven Rendall, Philosophy and Literature

Book News Annotation:

Covers a wide range of fields, including technical, scholarly biblical, and literary translation; simultaneous and consecutive interpretation; signing; television subtitling; advertising; and weather reports. Robinson examines the history of translation theory--from Augustine through Luther and Goethe to the present--and offers a series of pragmatic models for creative turns the translator makes passing from culture to culture, text to text.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 297-307) and index.
