In Other Words is the definitive coursebook for anyone studying translation. Assuming no knowledge of foreign languages, it offers both a practical and theoretical guide to translation studies, and provides an important foundation for training professional translators.

Using modern linguistic theory, this classic text provides a solid base to inform and guide the many key decisions trainee translators have to make. Authentic examples of translated texts from a wide variety of languages are examined, and practical exercises and further reading are included at the end of each chapter.

The new edition of In Other Words is updated with a new chapter on Ethics and Ideology, plus new genres such as audiovisual translation and oral interpreting.

What you will find on this website:

  • End of Chapter exercises with a variety of example answers in different languages
  • Video and audio lectures with student follow-up questions. 
  • Glossary flashcards to help you revise key terms
  • Useful weblinks to industry bodies, training resources and translation blogs and forums.
