Description - Thinking Arabic Translation by James Dickins

Thinking Arabic Translation is an indispensable book for linguists who want to develop their Arabic-to-English translation skills. Clear explanations, discussions, examples and exercises enable students to acquire the skills necessary for tackling a broad range of translation problems.

It is a book on translation method, drawing on a range of notions from linguistics and translation theory to encourage thoughtful consideration of possible solutions to practical problems.

This new edition includes:

* new material in almost all chapters

* a new chapter on parallelism

* two new chapters on technical translation: botanical and Islamic finance texts

* new and up-to-date examples from all types of translation, covering broad issues that have emerged in the Arab world in recent years

* texts drawn from a wide variety of writing types, including newspapers, prose fiction, poetry, tourist material, scientific texts, financial texts, recipes, academic writing, constitutions and political speeches

* at least three full-length practical translation exercises in each chapter to complement the discussions and consolidate learning.

In addition to the updated Tutor's Handbook, a Supplement, containing textual material and practical exercises aimed at further developing the translation issues discussed in the main text, and a Tutor's Handbook to the Supplement, are available at www.routledgetextbooks.com/textbooks/_author/thinkingtranslation/.
