Routledge Applied Linguistics is a series of comprehensive textbooks, providing students and researchers with the support they need for advanced study in the core areas of English language and Applied Linguistics.

Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections, enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline.

    • Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends readers’ techniques of analysis through practical application.
    • Section B, Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and discusses their contribution to the field.
    • Section C, Exploration, builds on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own research responses.

Translation 2nd edition introduces the theory and practice of translation from a variety of linguistic and cultural angles and has been revised and updated to feature:

  • a study of translation through the lens of key topics in linguistics such as semantics, functional linguistics, corpus and cognitive linguistics, discourse analysis, gender studies and postcolonialism;
  • a wide range of examples from other languages, including French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Arabic, with English back translations to assist comprehension;
  • material from a variety of sources, genres and text-types, such as advertisements, religious texts, reports for international organizations, videogames, literary and technical texts;
  • influential readings from the key names in the discipline, including Vinay and Darbelnet, Eugene Nida, Werner Koller and Ernst-August Gutt and contains new readings from Mona Baker, Michael Cronin, Kim Grego, Miguel A. Jiménez-Crespo, Kevin Gary Smith, Harald Martin Olk, Carmen Mangiron and Minako O’Hagan.

Additional resources for the book can be found at Further text examples, translations, illustrative material and updates on recent developments and events in Translation Studies will be posted there.

Written by two experienced teachers, translators and researchers in the field, Translation remains an essential resource for students and researchers of Translation Studies and Applied Linguistics.
