This book brings together an international team of leading translation teachers and researchers to address concerns that are central in translation pedagogy. The authors address the location and weighting in translation curricula of learning and training, theory and practice, and the relationships between the profession, its practitioners, its professors and scholars. They explore the concepts of translator competence, skills and capacities and two papers report empirical studies designed to explore effects of the use of translation in language teaching. These are complemented by papers on student achievement and attitudes to translation in programmes that are not primarily designed with prospective translators in mind, and by papers that discuss language teaching within dedicated translation programmes. The introduction and the closing paper consider some causes and consequences of the odd relationships that speakers of English have to other languages, to translation and ultimately, perhaps, to their "own" language.

Table of Contents
“Those of us involved in teaching within Translation Studies have much to learn from the long and rich experience of those working in language acquisition; this volume is proof that our work in Translation Studies is now also producing results and feedback, hopefully of use not only to ourselves but also to those using translation for purposes other than educating future professionals in the classroom.”
