Abstract

This dictionary provides a comprehensive survey of key terms and concepts, types of activity, and schools and approaches. Each term is presented within the context in which it first occurred and given a clear and informative definition. Major entries include a discussion of relevant viewpoints as well as comments on how the usage and application of the term have developed subsequent to its introduction in Translation Studies. All entries provide suggestions for further reading, and an extensive bibliography. [Based on publisher information]
