9780878401338: En otras palabras: Perfeccionamiento del español por medio de la traducción (Spanish Edition)

Students in advanced Spanish courses come from many backgrounds, but they share a desire to use the language. Translation (traducción), as used in En otras palabras, is an activity that combines the intellectual with the practical: in order to produce an acceptable translation, students must focus their attention on lexical and grammatical detail. This challenging and enjoyable textbook combines incisive grammar explanation, relevant lexical information, and a wide variety of translation texts and exercises.

En otras palabras contains two kinds of translation texts: Spanish to be translated into English, and English into Spanish. Translating into English requires students to understand every detail of the Spanish text, and then decide how these details might best be expressed in English. Translating into Spanish requires students to recognize how Spanish structures and words do -- and do not -- parallel those of English. Both activities provide advanced students of Spanish with an invigorating linguistic workout, and serve as an effective introduction to the practice of translation.

ADDED BONUS: Georgetown University Press is pleased to announce an online Instructor's Manual for En otras palabras. (Orders for Desk Copies with supporting course, enrollment, and bookstore order information will automatically receive instructions for online access.)

Review:

" En otras palabras is a resource for multiple ends. For Spanish teachers and advanced students, it provides explanations, examples, and exercises that can be expanded and complemented. For translation students, it provides translation exercises in both directions. And professional translators of either combination can use this book as a basis, and a challenge, to practice translation into the nonnative language." -- ATA Chronicle



" En otras palabras is a truly outstanding text that teaches not only the art of translation, but perfection of Spanish grammar skills as well. Its fun and exciting approach will captivate the minds of students and keep them wanting more." -- Timothy L. Face, assistant professor of Hispanic linguistics, University of Minnesota
