Call for Papers: Translation and Lexicography

Call for papers for an inTRAlinea Special Issue (2013), edited by María del Mar Sánchez Ramos, María Porciel Crosa and Iris Serrat Roozen

Dictionaries –general and specialized, printed and online– are one of the most important tools for the translator. Language professionals need to know how to consult and use dictionaries in order to complete a translation task effectively, while students of translation need to learn skills to do so. The relationship between dictionaries and Translation Studies seems also worth investigating. Nevertheless, as some scholars have pointed out (Fenner, 1989; Roberts, 1997; Corpas Pastor, 2001) dictionaries—and lexicography more  in general— have not be given the attention they deserve in Translation Studies.
Submissions are invited for a special issue of inTRAlinea online journal of translation studies on Translation and Lexicography, to be published in 2013.

Topics may include but are not restricted to the following:
-E-Lexicography and translation
-Dictionary look-up strategies and translation
-Specialized translation and lexicography
-Corpus linguistics and dictionary making
-Translation and lexicographic typology
- Multimedia dictionaries and translation practice
- Advanced query interfaces
- Specialized dictionaries and terminology
- Translator training and dictionary use
-Social media and lexicography

Contributions can be submitted in English, Italian, French, German and Spanish, and should not exceed 7,500 words including notes and references. They should include a short abstract and a set of keywords, both in English and in the language of the article, where applicable.
The deadline for article submission is November 31, 2012.
Submissions should be sent as a word document to María del Mar Sánchez Ramos (, María Porciel Crosa ( or Iris Serrat Roozen (,
