Could anyone pls advise where you can get Vinay & Darbelnet's transposition tool ? I've checked both Altavista and Google, but you only get a host of URLS featuring articles, comments, etc.on the subject, but you get no indication as to where the tool can actually be obtained/downloaded. Thanks.

I ain't sure but... Aug 11, 2004

I would say it's not a "tool" as in a software: it's a theory, it's a mechanism of translation.

I have Vinay & Darbelnet's book (Stylistique comparée du français et de l'anglais) and yes, "transposition" is explained.

Using your knowledge of that theory, you can apply it to your daily translation life.

But I have never heard of any software by them... especially since their work dates from the 1950's-1970's. If such a software exists, it would have been created by somebody else than them!

Good luck
