Thinking Arabic Translation is a comprehensive and practical 24-week course in translation method. Adapted from the successful French-based Thinking Translation (1992) it has been successfully piloted at Durham University.
Clear explanations, discussion, examples and exercises enable students to acquire the skills necessary for tackling a broad range of translation problems. Examples are drawn from a variety of sources, including journalism and politics, legal and technical texts and literary and consumer-orientated texts. This Tutor's Handbook complements the Thinking Arabic Translation Coursebook for students. It provides invaluable guidance on using the course and includes specimen answers and photocopiable class handouts.
