I would be very grateful if anybody could send me a copy of this article:

Ansaldi, Michael (1999) Translation and the Law: Observations of a Law Professor/Translator. Language International, (11)1, pp.12-17

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Riccardo

The article you mention is within / belongs to a book, and you can purchase a copy on Internet.

Hope this helps!

Thank you, but that is not what I need Feb 19, 2009

The article I mention is actually not a book, although the book you suggest has a similar title as the article I'm looking for.

I was aware of that book, but although it covers some of the same ground covered by Ansaldi in his article, it actually precedes it.

What I need is specifically Ansaldi's article, if anybody has a copy.

Thank you anyway for your help!

Have you tried Feb 19, 2009

contacting Language International, which now apparently exists as a website,

http://www.language-international.net/

or its former editor directly, Geoffrey Kingscott?

Yes, that article is heavily cited here in Byrne's article about legal liability for translator error: http://www.jostrans.org/issue07/art_byrne.php

I was particularly curious as to what both Byrne and Ansaldi apparently agreed to categorise as a 'schoolboy error'. The term, though common enough among a certain generation of translation theorist, (along with 'howler'), raises a hackle, not least for its sexism.
