New special issue on Quality in Legal Translation (open access)

jostrans-logoThe latest issue of The Journal of Specialised Translation (JoSTrans) is now available, including, amongst other things, articles on: the skills needed  for legal translation; written translation in criminal proceedings as a separate right;  translating in the EU environment; translating the names of official bodies; quality assurance; assessment; and stakeholder involvement in quality.

The issue can be consulted here.

To those who might wonder why I foreground open access journals – it is because most professional translators do not have access to highly priced academic journals, and therefore, even if they wish to do so, often cannot consult them.
