Description - Introducing Corpora in Translation Studies by Maeve Olohan

The use of corpora in translation studies, both as a tool for translators and as a way of analyzing the process of translation, is growing. This book provides a much-needed assessment of how the analysis of corpus data can make a contribution to the study of translation. Introducing Corpora in Translation Studies: * traces the development of corpus methods within translation studies * defines the types of corpora used for translation research, discussing their design and application and presenting tools for extracting and analyzing data * examines research potential and methodological limitatis * considers some uses of corpora by translators and in translator training * features research questions, case studies and discussion points to provide a practical guide to using corpora in translation studies. Offering a comprehensive account of the use of corpora by today's translators and researchers, Introducing Corpora in Translation Studies is the definitive guide to a fast-developing area of study.
