Welcome to the website for Routledge’s acclaimed “Thinking Translation” series. Coursebooks in this series offer a challenging yet practical approach to the acquisition of translation skills for students. They draw on a rich selection of authentic texts from diverse fields such as literature, journalism, law and business to consider crucial translation issues such as cultural difference, register and dialect, genre and editing.

Here you’ll find available for free download the tutor’s handbooks for the courses in Arabic, French, German, Spanish and Italian. The handbooks complement the coursebook for students, offering invaluable resources for teachers of advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students in these languages.  You’ll also find information about each book in the series and suggestions and links to other Routledge resources.

We hope that you will enjoy the website and thank you for your interest in the “Thinking Translation” series.
