Item description for Scientific and Technical Translation (American Translators Association Scholarly Monographs) by Sue Ellen Wright & Leland D. Wright, Jr....
Technical translation (and technical terminology) encompasses the translation of special language texts. This work is divided into five parts. Part 1 "Style and Register" covers clarity of style, culture-specific and author-reader conventions and expectation. The second part, "Special Applications", deals with the contribution of translation to the dissemination of science, while Part 3 "Training and Autodidactic Approaches for Technical Translators" shows how translators need to master a broad range of unanticipated topics, as well as being linguistically competent. Part 4 "Text Analysis and Text Typology as Tools for Technical Translators" focuses attention on text typology and SGML in human translation and CAT. The final part, "Translation-Oriented Terminology Activities", explores the different aspects of terminology: knowledge management, language planning, terminology resources and representation of concept systems.
