"Clear and accessible, this textbook provides a step by step guide to textual analysis for beginning translators and translation students . Covering a variety of text-types, including business letters, recipes and museum guides in six languages (Chinese, English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish), this book presents authentic, research-based materials to support translation among any of these languages. Translating Texts will provide beginning translators with greater text awareness, a critical skill for professional translators. Including discussions of the key theoretical texts underlying this text-centred approach to translation and sample rubrics for (self) assessment, this coursebook also provides easy instructions for creating additional corpora for other text types and in other languages. Ideal for both language neutral and language-specific classroom settings, this is an essential text for undergraduate and graduate level programs in modern languages and translation"--
