The Translator as Communicator
Adopting an integrated approach to the practice of translation, Hatim and Masonprovide a refreshingly unprejudiced contribution to translation theory.The authors argue that the division of the subject into literary and non-literary,technical and non-technical is unhelpful and misleading. Instead of dwelling onthese differentials, the authors focus on what common ground exists betweenthese distinctions. Through their investigation into how, for example, the ‘Bible’translator and the simultaneous interpreter can learn from each other, sets of parameters begin to evolve. The proposed model is presented through a series of case studies, ranging from legal texts to poems, each of which focuses on oneparticular feature of text constitution, while not losing sight of how thiscontributes to the whole analytic apparatus.Their approach is durable and meaningful, especially in view of recentdevelopments in the study of translation and communication, and their book willbe of immense interest both to aspiring students of translation and toprofessionals already working in the field.
