User-Centered Translation (Translation Practices Explained)

Translators want to take their readers into account, but traditional translation theory does not offer much advice on how to do that.

User-Centered Translation (UCT) offers practical tools and methods to help empower translators to act for their readers. This book will help readers to:

  • Create mental models such as personas;
  • Test translations with usability testing methods;
  • Carry out reception research.

Including assignments, case studies and real-life scenarios ranging from the translation of user instructions and EU texts to literary and audiovisual translation, this is an essential guide for students, translators and researchers.
