The main merit of the book lies in its completeness. Professor Gouadec gives an in-depth view of the profession that is very useful for aspiring translators as a guide, and for actual translators to revisit and rethink their job. [...] this is an excellent overview of the translation profession, recommended especially for translators who are still new to the profession.
