Selected papers from the 4th International Congress on Translation, held in Barcelona in 1998. US ISBN: 1-55619-791-8


This volume brings together a selection of papers presented at an international conference held in Barcelona in 1998. The papers illustrate four areas: The purpose of the first section, "Investigating Translation Paradigms", is to reach a critical revision of existing paradigms and to develop new ones in approaching the translated text. The second section, "Investigating the Translation Process", focuses on the skills, knowledge and strategies that make up translation competence. The third section, "Investigating Translation and Ideology", addresses not only the ‘invisible’ influence of ideologies on the translator, but also the role of translators in transmitting ideology. The fourth section, "Investigating Translation Receiver", envisages translators as communicators caught between the opposing trends of localisation and globalisation.
