Books on translation offer refresher course

Books on translation offer refresher courseB.J. Epstein, a past contributor here at Medical Translation Insight, posted a list of some good introductory texts on translation. As she mentions in her post, these will serve as a useful academic basis for a deeper understanding of what translation is and what translators do.

We're taking the liberty of featuring her list here:

Mona Baker: In Other Words: A Coursebook on Translation

Basil Hatim and Ian Mason: Discourse and the Translator

Clifford E. Landers: Literary Translation: A Practical Guide

André Lefevere: Translating Literature: Practice and Theory in a Comparative Literature Context

Jeremy Munday: Introducing Translation Studies

Peter Newmark: Approaches to Translation

Peter Newmark: A Textbook of Translation

Eugene A. Nida and Charles R. Taber: The Theory and Practice of Translation

Christiane Nord: Translating as a Purposeful Activity: Functionalist Approaches Explained

Gideon Toury: Descriptive Translation Studies and Beyond
In addition, we suggest that you take a look at the books that we've covered over the past 18 months.

Do you have any recommended reading to add to the list?
