Professor Tim Connell’s ‘Recommended Read’:
Meaning in Translation: Illusion of Precision
Editors: Larisa Ilynska and Marina Platonova.
This volume represents a collection of papers on fundamental and applied research on a wide range of linguistic topics, including terminology standardisation and harmonisation, the pragmatic, semantic and grammatical aspects of meaning in translation, and the translation of sacred, legal, poetic, promotional and scientific and technical texts.
“Meaning in Translation: Illusion of Precision covers a multitude of topics, which just go to show that translation is both enjoyable and complex. Topics range from the finer points of scientific translation to contracts involving English and Islamic law, and what the translator needs to do about the contrasts between them. There are also some highly specialised papers on topics such as Creole languages in translation which may be intended for the more expert reader, but which will still be accessible to a wider audience.”
