Reviews

Survey translation has received relatively little scholarly attention to date. The Sociolinguistics of Survey Translation is a very welcome addition to the field. The book discusses elements from sociolinguistics and translation studies, such as speech act theory, pragmatics, cultural norms, functional equivalence, and applies them to the field of survey translation. Ineke Crezee, Auckland University of Technology Center for Translation and Interpreting, New Zealand, and coeditor of Translation & Interpreting This volume provides a great step forward for modern survey translation by enhancing its linguistic foundation with sociolinguistic concepts. It is a marvelous tool box as well with the added benefit of examples from cultures as diverse as Arabic, Chinese or Spanish all linked to English as the source language. Peter Ph. Mohler, Universitat Mannheim, Germany, and coeditor of Survey Methods in Multinational, Multiregional and Multicultural Contexts
