This interesting and attractive volume was published by the Tehran-based Rahnama Press in 2017. The author, Vorya Dastyar, is a professional translator and interpreter as well as an independent translation and interpreting studies researcher who has already produced a Dictionary of Collocations, a Dictionary of Interpreting Studies and a Dictionary of Research Methodologies in Translation and Interpreting Studies. This new volume is the first dictionary of metaphors of translation and interpreting – and, indeed, one of the few metaphor dictionaries in any field – that I am aware of.
