In Other Words: A Coursebook on Translation

Looks good. If some one could upload it on to scribd would be good:

About the book:

This bestselling Coursebook addresses the need for a systematic approach to training in translation studies by drawing on key areas in modern linguistic theory and relating them systematically to a number of translation problems and strategies. The strategies are identified by an examination of authentic examples of translated texts in a variety of languages. No knowledge of linguistics or foreign languages is assumed. Each chapter begins with an explanation of the key linguistic concepts referred to and ends with a series of practical exercises. By striking a balance between theory and practice, the book provides a sound basis for training professional translators.

Fudail said: ‘Then your son has left the prison of this dunya before you. The grief left the man, and he said: “You have given a (proper) condolence.”
