Hi everybody,

I am a student in Technical Translation. I need to read some books on translation theory for my thesis. I had a look on the web and I found the Benjamins translation library and a couple of books by Mona Baker. What do you think?

Any advice would be more than welcome!

Thank you very much.

If you read Spanish, try Gredos' edition of García Yebra's manuals on translation.
