Learning Theories

Band 138: Frank Austermühl/Joachim Kornelius (eds.): Learning Theories and Practice in Translation Studies
Lighthouse 138/WVT 2008
ISBN 978-3-86821-116-0

Recent developments in the academic and professional worlds of translation—symbolized above all by the Bologna Process and the growing importance of the localization industry—have not only put significant pressure on universities worldwide to modernize their curricula but have also allowed for the unfolding of numerous, often-times highly creative experiments in translator and interpreter training.

This book provides a platform for the presentation of some of these innovative and trailblazing approaches and does so from a global perspective. The contributors come from diverse cultural backgrounds, reflecting their academic and professional experiences in China, England, Germany, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and the United States. The individual contributions present a blend of theory and practice, contributing to the discussion and continued development of modern didactic ideas in Translation Studies, and provide hands-on, replicable descriptions of selected case studies that apply a variety of didactic approaches.
