Practice Your Spanish! #4

Reading and translation practice for people learning Spanish

Book 4 in the series. New sections for books 3 and 4 include multiple choice questions in each unit, which test both grammatical knowledge and vocabulary. Also, the long texts at the end of each unit are all taken from one (very long) article, which is given in full at the end of the book. This book is not for beginners. It is for intermediate learners of Spanish who want to improve their Spanish, as well as advanced learners who are looking to brush-up on their language skills. The idea is to master Spanish through reading, and with this in mind the book contains lots (and lots!) of parallel texts (bilingual Spanish-English) to practice reading comprehension, plus exercises to translate single sentences from English into Spanish. This is a dual-language book and everything is in Spanish AND English, so exercises are useful to readers of different levels of ability in Spanish. However, the book is aimed primarily at high school and college students of Spanish, those taking Spanish SATs, ACT or PSAT / NMSQT tests, or anyone else who has already acquired a working knowledge of the language, including advanced learners. They say ‘practice makes perfect’. Practice your Spanish! allows you to do just that, and is the most effective way to learn and improve your Spanish. There are five units in the book, each one offering a mixture of single sentences and longer texts. Every example of Spanish is followed (usually on the next page) by a translation into English. This allows readers to ‘click’ through as much material as they want, even if it’s just a sentence or two at a time. You will always be understanding Spanish as you go, and the dual-language format makes this an ideal self-study resource. This book is not a textbook and contains no grammar exercises! It is an additional way of helping learners of Spanish improve their language skills. However, the texts themselves contain a wide variety of grammatical structures, tenses, and set expressions in Spanish. The vocabulary is also rich and varied, containing all the most useful Spanish words. But don’t worry if you don’t understand everything--a full translation into English is just one click away! A note on the translations: we have tried to provide good, straightforward translations of all material in this book. But remember that there are potentially many ways of translating any sentence.

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 Handbook of Spanish-English Translation is a lively and accessible book for students interested in translation studies and Spanish. This book details the growth of translation studies from Cicero to postcolonial interpretations of translation as rewriting. It examines through examples the main issues involved in translation and interpretation, such as text types, register, interference, equivalence, and untranslatability. The chapters on interpretation and audiovisual translation and the comparative analysis of Spanish and English are especially significant. The second part of the book offers a rich compilation of diverse Spanish and English texts (academic, literary, and government writings, comic strips, brochures, movie scripts, and newspapers) and their published translations, each with a brief introduction by Professor Aranda.

New technologies are constantly transforming traditional notions of language use and literacy in online communication environments. While previous research has provided a foundation for understanding the use of new technologies in instructed second language environments, few studies have investigated new literacies and electronic discourse beyond the classroom setting. This volume seeks to address this gap by providing corpus-based and empirical studies of electronic discourse analyzing social and linguistic variation as well as communicative practices in chat, discussion forums, blogs, and podcasts. Several chapters also examine the assessment and integration of new literacies. This volume will serve as a valuable resource for researchers, teachers, and students interested in exploring electronic discourse and new literacies in language learning and teaching.

Teaching Translation from Spanish to English

Worlds Beyond Words

While many professional translators believe the ability to translate is a gift that one either has or does not have, Allison Beeby Lonsdale questions this view. In her innovative book, she demonstrates how teachers can guide their students by showing them how insights from communication theory, discourse analysis, pragmatics, and semiotics illuminate the translation process. Challenging long-held assumptions, she establishes a fascinating framework on which to base the structure of a professional prose-translation class. Her original contributions to the question of directionatliy and to the specific strategies of tranlsating are applicable to not only the teaching of translation from Spanish to English, but to other teaching situations and to other pairs of languages as well. She also reviews the latest attempts in translation theory to define and contextualize ideal translator competence, student translator competence, and general translation strategies. Beeby Lonsdale completes her book by applying her conclusions to selecting and organizing the content of teaching translation from Spanish to English. She illustrates one or more of the basic translation principles through 29 teaching units, which are prefaced by objectives, tasks, and commentaries for the teacher, and through 48 task sheets, which show how to present the material to students.
