Resumen:   A book that considers the practical aspects of the translation profession and provides a complement to language teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level. It considers in more detail business aspects of translation. It provides wider coverage of changes in information technology which affect the translator. It raises awareness of the translator as a highly-qualified but undervalued professional. It looks at the profession of translator on the basis of evelopments over the last few years and encourages both practitioners and buyers of translation services to view translation as a highly-qualified, skilled profession and not just a cost-led word mill.
