Despite current advances exemplified by special journal issues like Evaluation and Translation (Maier 2000) and Évaluation: paramètres, méthodes, aspects pédagogiques (Lee-Jahnke 2001), translation quality assessment remains quite a controversial and complex subject. Therefore, the volume under review raises the expectations for the implementation of policies in the field of translation quality. These expectations, however, are not met since the topic turns out to be covered rather superficially and some important issues are ignored.
