The corpus-based approach has developed into a well established paradigm in Translation Studies and has been recognised as a principal reason for the revival of contrastive linguistics since the 1990s, while corpus-based contrastive and Translation Studies have in turn significantly expanded the scope of corpus linguistics. This volume features a selection of twenty-three papers from the 2008 meeting of Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies (UCCTS), an international conference series launched to provide an international forum for the exploration of theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the creation and use of corpora in contrastive and Translation Studies. The papers in this collection represent the latest developments in corpus-based Translation Studies, corpus-based contrastive studies, parallel corpus development and bilingual lexicography.
