As a result of globalisation, much loved or hated, depending on one's point of view, the importance of being able to communicate in different languages in order to do business with other countries has grown exponentially for companies. The translation industry is hence a market segment enjoying continuous expansion, as communication between different peoples has become a fundamental instrument to overcome the linguistic and cultural barriers dividing them.
This volume redresses the deficiency that exists in the bibliographical panorama of the sector, providing an in-depth and up-to-date report on all the aspects of this type of company. The practical and direct work unmasks the false myths shrouding the world of translations, and restores a true, clear, and pragmatic picture of the sector, thanks to the professional experience of the author.
A useful read for those keen to deepen their acquaintance with the sector, the book has been written for both agencies and translation students, professional translators and emerging translators alike, in an effort to restore dignity to a field that has all too often been ill-understood and ill-treated.
