The Beginning Translator's Workbook or the ABCs of French to English Translation is an invaluable resource for teaching the theory and practice of translation in the college or university setting. It not only provides an overview of the seven translation procedures with practical illustrative exercises, but delves into the more advanced area of literary translation. -- Domenic A. Beneventi, professor at University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada
Michele Jones' Beginning Translator's Workbook is an ideal core text for college courses. It introduces students to all the key issues in French-to-English translation and offers step-by-step help in tackling them. The many examples and exercises provide well-structured opportunities for practice and discussion. I have used the first edition of this book in my own teaching with excellent results, and this revised and updated edition is sure to enjoy even greater success. -- Patrick Coleman, professor of French and Francophone Studies, University of California, Los Angeles
As a translator myself, I have been impressed by the techniques demonstrated in The Beginning Translator's Workbook or the ABCs of French to English Translation. I consider this work an essential tool for teaching or learning the art and skills of translation. I highly recommend it. -- Marie-Lise Gazarian, professor and director of the graduate program in Spanish at St. John's University, Queens, NY
