This first Dutch for Reading Knowledge book on the market promotes a high level of reading and translation competency by drawing from Dutch grammar, vocabulary and reading strategies, and providing many translation “shortcuts” and tips when tackling complex texts in Dutch. Aimed at students, researchers and scholars who need to learn how to read and translate modern Dutch texts for their academic research, this book focuses on those areas where the Netherlands plays or has played a leading and innovative role in the world. These areas include architecture, art history, design, the Dutch Golden Age, (post)colonialism, (im)migration, social legislation and water management. For all areas the authors combine profound knowledge of the field with great expertise in teaching Dutch language and culture. This book can be used for a Dutch for Reading Knowledge course or curriculum, and is also highly suitable for self study.

Table of Contents
“This first Dutch for Reading Knowledge textbook addresses a long-standing lacuna in available resources for international scholars by providing the tools necessary for reading original Dutch-language materials efficiently and effectively. This book will be an essential first stop, and is sure to become a global classic, for any advanced student contemplating a Dutch-related topic or extended study in the Netherlands.”
“As economies globalize, there is a growing need for good translators and for the development of translation as its own discipline within the Dutch language programs around the world. Up until now, there was no book to assist teachers and learners in training translation skills. With the first textbook written specifically for Dutch for Reading Knowledge, Inez Hollander, Frans Blom and Christine van Baalen have filled a huge gap in the market. Suitable for self study as well as the classroom, this book comes just at the right time.”
