Corpus-based Approaches to Translation and Interpreting

From Theory to Applications


Gloria Corpas Pastor and Miriam Seghiri

Corpus-based translation studies have come a long way since they were introduced in the last decade of the 20th century. This volume offers a balanced collection of theoretical and application-orientated contributions which establish novel trends in the area of corpus-based translation and interpreting studies. Most of the theoretical contributions report on studies related to translation universals such as simplification, explicitation, normalisation, convergence or transfer. The application-orientated contributions cover areas as diverse as corpus-based applied research, training, practice and the use of computer-assisted translation tools.

Gloria Corpas Pastor is Professor in Translation and Interpreting (University of Malaga, Spain) and Visiting Professor in Translation Technologies at RIILP (University of Wolverhampton, UK). Miriam Seghiri is Senior Lecturer in Translation and Interpreting also at the University of Malaga. Their research fields include specialised translation, corpus linguistics and translation technology.
