Translation and Web Localization covers the key areas and main theoretical and practical approaches of the subject. Topics covered include:
the often controversial definition of localization
how the process develops
what constitutes a text in this process
digital genre theory and its implications

The book concludes with a look into the dynamic nature of web localization and the forces, such as crowdsourcing, that are reshaping web localization and translation as we know it.
An indispensable book for students studying in this area, as well as practitioners and researchers in related fields such as computational linguistics, applied linguistics, Internet linguistics, digital genre theory and web development.
