Translation and film adaptation of theatre have received little study.

About the Author:

Phyllis Zatlin is Professor of Spanish and coordinator of translator training at Rutgers University. She has been associate editor of the journal Estreno, contributing editor of Western European Stages, and general editor of ESTRENO Plays translation series. Her books include Cross-Cultural Approaches to Theatre: The Spanish-French Connection (1994) and The Novels and Plays of Eduardo Manet, an Adventure in Multi-Culturalism (2000).

Review:

This book is a perfect blend of translation theory and practice. It is a good guide for practitioners as well as beginners. Others who take an interest in drama and film translation will find a wealth of interesting insights.

(Xu Jianzhong, Perspectives Volume 13:4)

The practical suggestions to theatre translators and the in-depth realistic illustrations the book provides are informative and unprecedented. The later part of the book is distinguished in probing into various unexplored areas regarding theatrical translation, while the earlier part excels in providing sound practical advice to theatrical practitioners. Both directions are potential areas for further pursuit and the effort in addressing these neglected areas in this book is highly appreciated.

(Ka-Wai Young, LinguistList 17.721)
