Thinking Spanish translation; a course in translation method, Spanish to English, 2d ed.

Haywood, Louise M. et al.



288 pages




Sandor Hervey (d. 1997) developed the first course on translation methodology at St. Andrews University, Scotland, originally for French students. He and Haywood adopted the methods for upper-class undergraduate students of Spanish, and from that course developed the 1995 first edition of this textbook. Michael Thompson has joined the team for this second edition, which takes account of subsequent adaptations of the approach and texts for French and German, and responds particularly to the challenges discovered in teaching Spanish translation in the classroom. Among the topics they discuss are preliminaries to translation as a product, cultural issues, the formal properties of texts, connotative meaning and translation problems, scientific and technical translation, and stylistic editing.
