Scientific and Technical Translation (STT) is a highly complex and knowledge-intensive field of translation and cognitive linguistics is a usage-based linguistic framework which provides powerful theoretical tools for modelling knowledge organisation and representation in discourse. This book explores the interface between scientific and technical translation studies and cognitive linguistics by discussing the epistemological, contextual, textual and cross-linguistic dimensions of scientific and technical translation from a cognitive linguistic perspective. Particular emphasis is placed on explicitation and implicitation as indicators of the interaction between text and context in STT. The corpusbased investigation of the two phenomena illustrates the complex knowledge requirements pertaining to scientific and technical translation and demonstrates the explanatory power of cognitive linguistics with regard to important textual and contextual aspects of STT.

Das Handbuch Ubersetzung entfaltet erstmals den gesamten Gegenstandsbereich, der unter Ubersetzung verstanden werden kann, in seinen Problemkomplexen. Es bietet eine kritische Bestandsaufnahme des derzeit verfugbaren Wissens und der internationalen Forschung zur Ubersetzung unter systematischen und historischen Gesichtspunkten.

Es erfasst ihre Gegenstande-Ubersetzungsphanomene, verstanden als Formen inter- und innersprachlichen Transfers und interkultureller Kommunikation - in deren sozialen, raumlichen, situativen, sprachlichen, literarischen und allgemein kulturellen Vielfalt unter diachronen, synchronen und systematischen Gesichtspunkten. Es erlautert und dokumentiert die wichtigsten Ergebnisse bisheriger Ubersetzungsforschung, aber auch aktuelle Debatten, in ihren jeweiligen geistes-, sozial- und wissenschaftsgeschichtlichen, theoretischen und methodischen Bindungen. Es weist auf Forschungslucken hin und benennt Prioritaten und Desiderata fur kunftige Forschung.
