  • Information


Written by translation practitioners, teachers and researchers, this edited volume is a much-needed contribution to the under-researched area of community translation.

Its chapters outline the specific nature and challenges of community translation (e.g. language policies, language variation within target communities, literacy levels), quality standards, training and the relationship between community translation as a professional practice and volunteer or crowd-sourced translation.

A number of chapters also provide insights into the situation of community translation and initiatives taking place in different countries (e.g.

Australia, South Africa, Spain, the USA or the UK). The book is of interest to translation practitioners, researchers and trainers, particularly those working or interested in the specific field of community translation, as well as to translation students on undergraduate, postgraduate or further education courses covering translation in general or community translation in particular.
