`This book is an insightful and extremely practical resource for students who will seek a career in translation, be it in a literary, technical, or commercial environment. The book is so clearly written and well organized that it could easily be used for independent study... Moreover, the established scholar or translator may find the book, especially the chapters on modal particles and focus, to be a useful reference work.' Christopher D. Sapp on LinguistList

'A well-conceived and extremely useful book, the only one of its kind available, and particularly to be valued for its emphasis on the creative and decision-making aspects of translation.' - Jean Boase-Beier, UEA

'[There is a] decisive increase in the introduction of translation programmes, mainly at postgraduate level, but now also at undergraduate level. Textbooks therefore are essential, and the present one has a lot to offer in this respect.' - Christina Schaffner, Aston University
