Book Review

New Book Club Series!

On the last Tuesday of every month I’ll review some translation studies books in more detail – some of which I will have mentioned in my post: I’m all booked up… Which Translation Theory books are worth it? My top 5 , but hopefully some of the others will be new and different too.
