Presentation of Monica Zhekov’s book “Bridging the Vernacular Gap: Safeguarding Devices in English-Romanian Translation, Wipf and Stock, 2013”

Chair: Abele Longo, Middlesex University

“This book constitutes a valuable contribution to the study of cross-cultural elements in literary translation and will certainly stimulate research in this field. Thanks to its clear-cut structure and functional methodology, it manages to address the complex subject of translating children’s literature from a variety of specific textual and stylistic angles, and, independent of the target language considered, [it] provides readers with efficient transfer strategies and procedures.”
LAURA GIACOMINI, Department of Translation and Interpretation, Universität Heidelberg
