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?

Did you find it? part II the mystery continues Mar 15, 2013

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.
