Review quote

"An excellent and timely overview of translation and emotion, a topic that corresponds to recent developments in translation process research yet has previously not been addressed in any great depth. It is innovative, original and a highly recommended read for scholars, teachers and students of translation, translators, and also for linguists and psychologists." -Hanna Risku, University of Graz, Austria "This book proves that translators are not mere neutral word crunchers and looks under the hood of their minds to unveil a complex interplay between reason and emotion that both affects and is affected by their work." -Ricardo Munoz Martin, Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spainshow more
