The Issue of Direction of Translation in China: A Historical Overview
This is the first comprehensive survey of the issue of direction of translation in China, covering the period between the second century and the present time. Translation into the non-mother tongue or inverse translation is a time-honored practice in China, but there has been a lack of attention to the issue of directionality.

The history of translation
When we talk about the history of translation, we should think of the theories and names that emerged at its different periods. In fact, each era is characterized by specific changes in translation history, but these changes differ from one place to another.

The latest such work, Translators through History, edited and directed by Jean Delisle and Judith Woodsworth, appears under the very highest auspices, being co-published by John Benjamins and Unesco …

For the Benefit & Helpe of Ladies and Gentlewomen:
A Translators Historical Review of Dictionaries and Their Eccentricities

Although the major European countries have been prolific in bringing dictionaries to press since the early seventeenth century, dictionary production in the twentieth century has grown exponentially in all the major European languages. It is worth mentioning that although in the last two decades there have been revolutionary electronic innovations in format, searchability, presentation and design, in many fundamental respects monolingual general dictionaries produced today, whether in the United States or in Europe, are very similar to those of earlier centuries…
