Marvellous book Nov 12, 2011

Thanks for posting on this topic and for the links.

I read this book recently and was amazed and convinced by David Bellos's refreshing approach to translation.

I always struggle with forum topic searches and never quite seem to find what I'm looking for. I did check to see if anyone had posted on this before and couldn't find anything. Anyway, do read it. It's brilliant and enlightening - particulary the chapter on simultaneous interpreting.

Maybe I'll ask for it for Christmas!
