Description

Written by Scribd Editors

Kick off a position as a professional translator with this easy-to-follow beginner’s guide!

The successful practice of translating French to English relies on a strong foundation in methodology as well as a pre-existing proficiency in French. This text combines methodology and practice to undertake a linguistic approach to the problems of translation, and addresses typical difficulties, such as the delineation of “translation units”, word polysemy, false cognates, and structural and cultural obstacles to literal translation. The Beginning Translator’s Workbook: or the ABCs of French to English Translation is split into two parts, the first of which highlights the use of specific strategies such as transposition, modulation, equivalence, and adaptation to combat translation problems. The second portion illustrates global application of the techniques previously covered, therefore guiding the student through step-by-step translations of literary and non-literary excerpts.

In this fully revised and updated version, author Michele H. Jones clarifies some of the details of the translation techniques covered in the first edition. She also offers additional practice exercises, and supplies information on a website that can be used in class.
