Following the same format as the highly praised 2000-2004 edition, Recommended Books in Spanish for Children and Young Adults, 2004-2008 is an outstanding reference tool that includes annotated entries for more than 1,200 books in Spanish published between 2004 and 2008 in the U.S., Spain, Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina. Each entry includes an extensive critical annotation, title in Spanish as well as English, tentative grade level, and approximate price. The books have been selected because of their quality of art and writing, presentation of material and appeal to the intended audience, and support the informational, educational, recreational and personal needs of Spanish speakers from preschool through the twelfth grade. Whether used for the development and support of an existing library collection or for the creation of a new library serving Spanish-speaking young readers, the books in this volume are of value to Spanish-speaking children and young adults (or those who wish to learn Spanish). This volume is arranged in four sections: Reference, Nonfiction (Philosophy, Psychology, Religion, Social Science, Folklore, Language, Science, Technology, Health and Medicine, The Arts, Recreation and Sports, Literature, Poetry, Geography, History, and Biography), Publishers' Series, and Fiction (Easy Books, General Fiction and Graphic Novels). This volume also includes an appendix of merchants who sell books in Spanish, as well as author, title, and subject indexes.

Medical translation encompasses an ever-expanding variety of subjects, each of which is fast becoming more specialised, requiring new terminology and a new jargon. All the assignments in this book were taken from real-life translations which were done during the past two or three years. Names and other data of a private nature have been changed to protect proprietary information. The assignments reflect major areas of legal translation and are duly representative of the types of Spanish legal translation one is going to encounter these days. They are also arranged in an ascending order of difficulty starting with a rather general text and leading up to the most technical text. The first four texts are translation from Spanish into English, done mainly by native speakers of English. The second four are translations from English into Spanish, done mainly by native speakers of Spanish. To derive the maximum benefit from these texts, you should carefully read the General Comments, the guidelines and the specific notes which discuss each assignment. Every comment and guideline represents years of experience in professional translation work. By carefully following this programme you will be able to achieve in just a few days what has taken other years to learn. You will be guided through many of the pitfalls of translation, taught how to avoid them, shown shortcuts in accomplishing a complex piece of translation work, and be given the benefit of comments designed to show you how to produce a translation acceptable to major clients such as government, industry, healthcare providers, hospitals, physicians and other. Includes CD-ROM.

The Practice of Court Interpreting describes how the interpreter works in the court room and other legal settings. The book discusses what is involved in court interpreting: case preparation, ethics and procedure, the creation and avoidance of error, translation and legal documents, tape transcription and translation, testifying as an expert witness, and continuing education outside the classroom. The purpose of the book is to provide the interpreter with a map of the terrain and to suggest methods that will help insure an accurate result. The author, herself a practicing court interpreter, says: “The structure of the book follows the structure of the work as we do it.” The book is intended as a basic course book, as background reading for practicing court interpreters and for court officials who deal with interpreters.

Was heute noch undenkbar scheint, ist morgen schon Alltag – sprechende Übungsbücher, Schulaufgaben, die von den Schülern lernen. Schneller als gedacht, wird Big Data Einzug in Schulen und Klassenzimmer halten, so die These der beiden Experten und Erfolgsautoren Viktor Mayer-Schönberger und Kenneth Cukier. Und damit das Schulsystem und das Lernen von Grund auf verändern. Die beiden Autoren von Big Data erklären, welche Neuheiten uns erwarten. Und zeigen, dass es nicht nur positiv ist, den Fortschritt der Schüler und Studenten immer besser messen zu können. Vor lauter PISA und Rankings bleibt oft das Wesentliche auf der Strecke – eine gute Bildung. Die Gefahr ist, dass das Lernen von der Quantität der Daten dominiert wird, und nicht von der Qualität, von Kreativität oder von Ideen. Sie plädieren daher eindringlich dafür, unsere Bildungssysteme schnellstens zukunftsfähig zu machen.
