This book explains and shows how corpora and the web as corpus can be consulted successfully to deliver technical translations in a first and second language. It follows a step-by-step approach and provides insights into term search, collocation retrieval and uses of words in contexts of various technical fields. You will become acquainted with online and offline corpora, the web as corpus and will be able to deliver native-like translations in different sectors. The fields tackled by this book are various and include economics, business, medicine and journalism.
This book is unique because not only does it clearly show how corpora and the web can be consulted to obtain relevant and reliable information in the field of technical translations, but it also provides the reader with a collection of electronic texts which can be consulted to translate the documents proposed in each chapter. In this way, the user will learn how to use corpora successfully by self-practising and will have free databases in economics, business and medicine for his/her own use. For these reasons, this is both a reference book for lecturers or technical translators and a self-study practice guide for students in translation studies. The ideal level of English is at least B2.
