Reviews

'A clear and comprehensive introduction to a complex and fast-moving field which is central to the activity of translation in the 21st century. This up-to-date account is required reading for trainees, practitioners and theorists.' - Professor Jenny Williams, Head of the School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies, Dublin City University, Republic of Ireland

'...a most welcome addition to the available literature...this is an excellent introduction to the use of computers for students of translation, which will also be of use to many of their teachers who do not have a strong computational background.' - Pius Ten Hacken, Modern Language Review
