Book Summary:

"Why Translation Matters argues for the cultural importance of translation and for a more encompassing and nuanced appreciation of the translator's role. As the acclaimed translator Edith Grossman writes in her introduction, "My intention is to stimulate a new consideration of an area of literature that is too often ignored, misunderstood, or misrepresented." For Grossman, translation has a transcendent importance: "Translation not only plays its important traditional role as the means that allows us access to literature originally written in one of the countless languages we cannot read, but it also represents a concrete literary presence with the crucial capacity to ease and make more meaningful our relationships to those with whom we may not have had a connection before. Translation always helps us to know, to see from a different angle, to attribute new value to what once may have been unfamiliar. As nations and as individuals, we have a critical need for that kind of understanding and insight. The alternative is unthinkable"."--Jacket.

Book Summary:

Whether Translation Studies really matters is an important and challenging question which practitioners of translation and interpreting raise repeatedly. TS scholars, many of whom are translators and interpreters themselves, are not indifferent to it either. The twenty papers of this thematic volume, contributed by authors from various parts of Europe, from Brazil and from Israel, address it in a positive spirit. Some do so through direct critical reflection and analysis, arguing in particular that the engagement of TS with society should be strengthened so that the latter could benefit more from the former. Others illustrate the relevance and contribution of TS to society and to other disciplines from various angles. Topics broached include the cultural mediation role of translators, issues in literary translation, knowledge as intellectual capital, globalization through English and risks associated with it, bridging languages, mass media, corpora, training, the use of modern technology, interdisciplinarity with psycholinguistics and neurophysiology.

Book Summary:

This book's 81 stories, essays, and ramblings, collected over the past 15 years, describe a world of translation where technology changes rapidly but where the translator remains the central figure, ever-savvier in using the tools of the trade and celebrating the diversity and power of language. The chasm may seem vast between the notion of translators as artists, bridge-builders, and cultural mediators on one hand and marketing specialists, entrepreneurs, and technology experts on the other. But translators are perfect examples of how to successfully combine these extremes in a world struggling to redefine itself with the rise of artificial intelligence. Rather than finding easy answers, the reader will be led on an often uneven path of discovery to find many examples where excellence, passion, and savvy are reliable guarantors of success no matter the outside circumstances. "As language professionals, sometimes we need tips and tricks, and sometimes we need a big-picture perspective on why our work is important in the world. In Translation Matters, Jost Zetzsche gives plenty of both. Need a tip on how various translation memory programs integrate machine translation? It's in this book. Wondering what role translators play in coining new words in specific languages? That's in this book, too. This compendium of Jost's writings is a great read for language professionals of all flavors!"Corinne McKay, Translator, ATA President 2017-2019 "If St. Jerome were to be reincarnated in the cyber era, he would manifest as Jost Zetzsche, a true giant of our profession in every way! No one else blends traditional craft and strong ethical values - from the finest Eastern ecstatics to Western wisdom - with cutting edge technology like him. These once avant-garde articles and essays are now timeless classics, and this collection will be read by this and many generations to come!" Henry Liu, Translator/Interpreter, President (2014-2017), International Federation of Translators (FIT)"What has remained constant in Jost Zetzsche's writings over the years-and what jumps off the page time after time in this collection-is not just his love of language, his dedication to the craft of translation, and his deep interest in translation tools and technologies, all of which are perfectly evident in these pages, but his passion for communicating about those things-with grace and wit and wonder and understanding-to his fellow translators. Jost reminds us throughout these essays that the goal of translators and their technologies is to bring people together, to foster community and to facilitate greater understanding."Jay Marciano, Director, Machine Translation, Lionbridge Technologies, Inc."What happens when a passion for languages and a geeky intellect join forces in someone who can express both with an engaging style that is a joy to read? This book, a collection of essays and columns drawn from years of contributing to such publications as the ATA Chronicle, the Translation Journal and the Tool Box Journal. It is a source of information and inspiration for all who are involved in the art of language and the business of translation. Read each chapter and absorb it, or read the whole book straight through. Either way, you will be glad you did!"Donna Parrish, Publisher, MultiLingual

Book Summary:

Performing Without a Stage is a lively and comprehensive introduction to the art of literary translation for readers of foreign fiction and poetry who wonder what it takes to translate, how the art of literary translation has changed over the centuries, what problems translators face in bringing foreign works into English and how they go about solving these problems. This book will also be of interest to translators, writers, editors, critics, and literature students, dealing as it does, often controversially, with such matters as the translator's fidelity to the author, the publishing and reviewing of translations, the nearly nonexistent public image of the stageless translator, and the value for writers and scholars of studying and practicing translation.

Book Summary:

Translating Nature recasts the era of early modern science as an age not of discovery but of translation. As Iberian and Protestant empires expanded across the Americas, colonial travelers encountered, translated, and reinterpreted Amerindian traditions of knowledge—knowledge that was later translated by the British, reading from Spanish and Portuguese texts. Translations of natural and ethnographic knowledge therefore took place across multiple boundaries—linguistic, cultural, and geographical—and produced, through their transmissions, the discoveries that characterize the early modern era. In the process, however, the identities of many of the original bearers of knowledge were lost or hidden in translation. The essays in Translating Nature explore the crucial role that the translation of philosophical and epistemological ideas played in European scientific exchanges with American Indians; the ethnographic practices and methods that facilitated appropriation of Amerindian knowledge; the ideas and practices used to record, organize, translate, and conceptualize Amerindian naturalist knowledge; and the persistent presence and influence of Amerindian and Iberian naturalist and medical knowledge in the development of early modern natural history. Contributors highlight the global nature of the history of science, the mobility of knowledge in the early modern era, and the foundational roles that Native Americans, Africans, and European Catholics played in this age of translation.

Book Summary:

Translating Children’s Literature is an exploration of the many developmental and linguistic issues related to writing and translating for children, an audience that spans a period of enormous intellectual progress and affective change from birth to adolescence. Lathey looks at a broad range of children’s literature, from prose fiction to poetry and picture books. Each of the seven chapters addresses a different aspect of translation for children, covering: · Narrative style and the challenges of translating the child’s voice; · The translation of cultural markers for young readers; · Translation of the modern picture book; · Dialogue, dialect and street language in modern children’s literature; · Read-aloud qualities, wordplay, onomatopoeia and the translation of children’s poetry; · Retranslation, retelling and reworking; · The role of translation for children within the global publishing and translation industries. This is the first practical guide to address all aspects of translating children’s literature, featuring extracts from commentaries and interviews with published translators of children’s literature, as well as examples and case studies across a range of languages and texts. Each chapter includes a set of questions and exercises for students. Translating Children’s Literature is essential reading for professional translators, researchers and students on courses in translation studies or children’s literature.
