Foreign Language Training in Translation and Interpreting Programmes


Edited By Astrid Schmidhofer and Enrique Cerezo Herrero

Foreign language proficiency is a must for professional translation and interpreting. However, research into Translation and Interpreting-Oriented Language Learning and Teaching (TILLT) is still scarce. As a result, many foreign language lecturers tackle language courses from a general perspective, disregarding the specific linguistic demands that both translation and interpreting place on their practitioners. Against this backdrop, this book brings together scholars who have conducted extensive research into this area. The aim of the volume is thus twofold: on the one hand, to establish international avenues for cooperation, and on the other, to proffer new and updated insights into a subdiscipline of Translation Studies that has not received the same attention as other translation areas.
