Issues and Strategies – A good book for those interested in translation

One of my favorite things about having a website is that readers send you tips to things to you may not have been aware of otherwise. Many thanks to Magnus for sending me a link to the below book.  After looking through it – I agree – the book is must-read for anyone who is or aspires to be a translator.

I’ve added it to my list of excellent Middle East-related books I’ve read recently.

One, there really aren’t very many books out there on the specific field of translation. This one aims to fill a gap in that market and offers a useful mix of theoretical and practical knowledge. The chapter on Legal translation is especially interesting.

But two, even for those who aren’t working as professional linguists, it’s filled with practical language takeaways for anyone interested interested in Arabic, and therefore worth a read.
