Review:

‘This innovative new edition of Becoming A Translator is essential reading for emerging translators and a welcome addition to the translation studies classroom.’ - Emily Wittman, University of Alabama, USA

‘This book is a comprehensive, practical and highly readable introduction to Translation as a Profession. By interweaving psychological, linguistic, social and cultural dimensions into all key aspects of real-life translation practice, it is innovative and effective in imparting the essential knowledge to its readers, including translators-to-be and translators in practice.’ - Susan Xu Yun, SIM University, Singapore

‘Translators need to be skilful, flexible, tough, organised, creative, analytical and paid for their work. This book gives helpful and concise guidance about all these needs, and anyone entering the profession will learn a lot from it. I recommend it strongly.’ - Raphael Salkie, University of Brighton, UK

‘If you have little or no previous exposure to translation, and want to catch up with developments in the field, try this book!’ - John Wang, Hong Kong Baptist University and Jinan University, China

"Robinson's Becoming a Translator, which is in its third edition, is a product of years of work, use, revision and updates. Much of the advice which it contains demonstrates that the author is an experienced, enthusiastic translator." - LINGUIST List
