Maillot, Jean. 1981. La traduction scientifique et technique [Scientific and technical translation]. Saint-Hyacinthe: Edisem. 264 pp.


This book on technical and scientific translation presents an exhaustive systematization of the linguistic problems which arise for a translator from the confrontation of two languages, or what is also called contrastive linguistics. Such problems relate to the correspondence of expressions and ideas in different languages and especially polysemy, false friends and other deceptive resemblances, etc.
