This volume contains selected papers from the 4th Language International Conference on ‘Teaching Translation and Interpreting: Building Bridges’ which was held in Shanghai in December 1998. The collection is an excellent source of ideas and information for teachers and students alike. With contributions from five continents, the topics discussed cover a wide range, including the relevance of translation theories, cultural and technical knowledge acquisition, literary translation, translation and interpreting for the media, Internet-related training methods, and tools for student assessment. While complementing the volumes of the previous three conferences in exploring new methods and frontiers, this collection is particularly strong on case studies outside of the European and Anglo-American spheres.

Works cited
“Eva Hung's volume is appealing in the wide range of translator and interpreter training issues it touches upon. [...] I believe that the key value of the book is the way it reflects the diversity involved in teaching translation and interpreting by providing a panorama of up-to-date examples.”
