Brian Mossop was a French-to-English translator, reviser and trainer at the Canadian Government's Translation Bureau for forty years. Since 1979, he has also been teaching revision, scientific translation, translation theory and translation into the second language at the York University School of Translation.
"`Revising and Editing for Translators' is a practically-oriented, well organised textbook which is of relevance to all members of the multidimensional readership which it intends to target. It plugs an important gap in literature on revising/editing practice and would be a useful addition to the library of current and future editors/revisers and trainers in the field." - Claire Louise Ellender, Universite Charles-de-Gaulle, The LINGUIST List
