This volume gathers a wide range of voices in Translation Studies offering theoretical insights and practical ideas on how to
tackle the cultural dimension in translation pedagogy. Issues range from curriculum planning to evaluation methods. The volume
illustrates that the practice of ‘translating culture’ in the classroom goes beyond the translation of so-called realia. It also
promotes the notion that translation teachers should foster transcultural awareness among their students, whereby intercultural
differences and similarities may be negotiated and transcended in the act of translation.
