The Second Translator unfolds on the eve of the bloody terrorist train bombings in Madrid and winds its way through Spain, Rome, South Africa, New York, and Boston bringing with it a tale of intrigue, danger, and betrayal. Its young hero, a translator named Martin Lambert, is swept up by the turmoil and revelation that the terrorists attack could be retribution for an old treaty between the Muslims and Catholics that he suspects might have been mistranslated in modern times to protect the riches and treasures of the Catholic Church.

Translation into the Second Language Book Description :

The dynamics of immigration, international commerce and the postcolonial world make it inevitable that much translation is done into a second language, despite the prevailing wisdom that translators should only work into their mother tongue. This book is the first study to explore the phenomenon of translation into a second language in a way that will interest applied linguists, translators and translation teachers, and ESOL teachers working with advanced level students. Rather than seeing translation into a second language as deficient output, this study adopts an interlanguage framework to consider L2 translation as the product of developing competence; learning to translate is seen as a special variety of second language acquisition. Through caref...

Beowulf Facing Page Translation Second Edition Book Description :

R.M. Liuzza’s translation of Beowulf, first published by Broadview in 1999, has been widely praised for its accuracy and beauty.

Appendices also include a generous sample of other modern translations of Beowulf, shedding light on the process of translating the poem....
