Introduction to Spanish Translation is designed for a third or fourth year college Spanish course. It presents the history, theory and practice of Spanish-to-English translation (with some consideration of English-to-Spanish translation). The very successful first edition of the text evolved from the author's experiences in two decades of teaching translation in the Department of Language and Foreign Studies of The American University. The emphasis is on general material to be found in current journals and newspapers, although there is also some specialized material from the fields of business, the social sciences, and literature. The twenty-four lessons in the text form the basis for a fourteen-week semester course. This newly revised edition contains an index, a glossary, examples of cognates and partial cognates, and translation exercises for each lesson.
Dr. Jack Child is a professor of Spanish and Latin American Studies at American University and coordinates the Spanish translation program. Though of American parentage, he grew up in Argentina and lived in South America for eighteen years. After graduating from Yale, he began a first career as a Latin American specialist in the U.S. Army; among his duties were translation and interpretation, including some work involving chiefs of state. In his second career, he has taught a variety of courses dealing with Latin America and translation. He is accredited by the American Translators Association as a Spanish-English and English-Spanish translator.
