This book is a manual for both advanced students and translators for translation between Arabic and English. The authors take a practical approach, focusing on contrastive stylistics and pay particular attention to the main areas of difficulty in English/Arabic translation. Each lesson contains translation examples and samples gleaned from authentic materials, both from literature and the media, plus additional exercises. A glossary and list of online resources are also provided at the back of the book.
