Teaching Translation: Contexts, Modes and Technologies

Martin Ward

The field of translation and interpreting (T&I) training has been undergoing rapid and far-reaching transformation in recent years, as a result of technological advances and sweeping shifts in the international environment within which T&I seeks to mediate.

Teaching Translation: Contexts, Modes and Technologies provides a cross-section of multi-national perspectives on teaching various dimensions of translation both within dedicated programmes and as part of individual modules on translation-adjacent programmes. This volume offers essential up-to-date perspectives to ensure that T&I training remains robust and resilient far into the 21st century.

The volume examines key topics of concern across academia, professional translation practice and collaborative pedagogies, as well as offering crucial insights from the voices of the trainees themselves.

Examining key topics of concern across academia, professional translation practice and collaborative pedagogies, as well as offering crucial insights from the voices of the trainees themselves, this is an essential text for professionals, scholars and teachers of translation studies and interpreting studies.
