Table of contents

This edited volume is one of the most encompassing books on legal translation to appear in the last few years. Its purpose seems to be to give an overview of the state of the art in current Legal Translation Studies (LTS), and the chosen editorial strategy to invite all the ‘celebrities’ of the field to write about their recent results. Most of the contributions are in English, but six chapters are in German, and one is in French. If one wants to know what the current topics are in LTS, this book is the best possible source.
