In this interdisciplinary book, Juliane House breaks new ground by situating translation within Applied Linguistics. In thirteen chapters, she examines translation as a means of communication across different languages and cultures, provides a critical overview of different approaches to translation, of the link between culture and translation, and between views of context and text in translation.

Featuring an account of translation from a linguistic-cognitive perspective, House covers problematic issues such as the existence of universals of translation, cases of untranslatability and ways and means of assessing the quality of a translation. Recent methodological and research avenues such as the role of corpora in translation and the effects of globalization processes on translation are presented in a neutral, non-biased manner. The book concludes with a thorough, historical account of the role of translation in foreign language learning and teaching and a discussion of new challenges and problems of the professional practice of translation in our world today.

Written by a highly experienced teacher and researcher in the field, Translation as Communication across Languages and Cultures is an essential resource for students and researchers of Translation Studies, Applied Linguistics and Communication Studies.

Review:

“Juliane House’s book  is an incisive re-evaluation of the position of Translation Studies and its relation to Applied Linguistics. It brings together  a wealth of critical material to provide a wide-ranging, up-to-date assessment of the complex phenomenon of translation in its broader linguistic, cognitive and social contexts.” Jeremy Munday, University of Leeds, UK

“This is an important book for researchers and practitioners in applied linguistics -  a passionate plea to consider translation  as recontextualization and cross-cultural communication. Thoroughly researched with plenty of examples,  this book also makes a forceful argument for rehabilitating translation in foreign language learning and teaching.” Claire Kramsch, University of California, Berkeley, USA

"To be highly recommended on at least three reasons: (i) a wide coverage, (ii) an up-to-date discussion and (iii) a combination of insightful theoretical analysis with empirical research."

Yuanyi Ma, Guangdong Polytechnic of Science and Technology
Bo Wang, Sun Yat-sen University
