As regular readers know, one of the goals of this blog is to build bridges between academia and practice, and so I am delighted to tell you that the 2017 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Linguistica Antverpiensia New Series – Themes in Translation Studies, entitled “Translator Quality-Translation Quality: Empirical Approaches to Assessment and Evaluation”, is now available, open-access, for download.
I’d especially like to point out one article, by Marja Kivilehto and Leena Salmi, Assessing assessment: The Authorized Translator’s Examination in Finland. The authors discuss the assessment systems used in Finland, Sweden, Norway, and Germany, and present the results of a case study on the application of the scoring chart used in the Finnish examination for “authorising translators to translate legally valid texts”.
The journal issue can be accessed here.
