Can Theory Help Translators? is a dialogue between a theoretical scholar and a professional translator, about the usefulness (if any) of translation theory. The authors argue about the problem of the translator's identity, the history of the translator's role, the translator's visibility, translation types and strategies, translation quality, ethics and translation aids.

Review:

... a work I will unreservedly recommend to my students. (Christine Pagnoulle, Perspectives) For practitioners, this book will be useful because it organizes a great deal of material about translation theory in a small space. For theoreticians, the book could be enlightening because it points out our lack of knowledge about so many aspects of translating. (Brian Mossop, Target)

Synopsis:

For the reader who is already working at the translation "wordface", especially those who are sceptical of all theorizing, this text aims to challenge his or her view of theory. For those in the "ivory tower" this text aims to strengthen the connections between theory and practice.
