This volume investigates advances in the field of legal translation both from a theoretical and practical perspective, with professional and academic insights from leading experts in the field. Part I of the collection focuses on the exploration of legal translatability from a theoretical angle. Covering fundamental issues such as equivalence in legal translation, approaches to legal translation and the interaction between judicial interpretation and legal translation, the authors offer contributions from philosophical, rhetorical, terminological and lexicographical perspectives. Part II focuses on the analysis of legal translation from a practical perspective among different jurisdictions such as China, the EU and Japan, offering multiple and pluralistic viewpoints. This book presents a collection of studies in legal translation which not only provide the latest international research findings among academics and practitioners, but also furnish us with a new approach to, and new insights into, the phenomena and nature of legal translation and legal transfer. The collection provides an invaluable reference for researchers, practitioners, academics and students specialising in law and legal translation, philosophy, sociology, linguistics and semiotics.

Hlavním cílem publikace je poskytnout čtenářům nejen teoreticky podložený návod, jak postupovat při převádění právních informací z češtiny do angličtiny, ale také praktické ukázky přístupu k překládání nového občanského zákoníku (NOZ). Publikace je rozdělena do tří kapitol. První kapitola podrobně analyzuje proces právního překladu, formuluje základní pravidla pro překládání právních textů a vymezuje rozsah právnělingvistických znalostí a překladatelských dovedností. Druhá kapitola se věnuje překládání právních předpisů, stanovuje právnělingvistická východiska pro překlad českých zákonů do angličtiny, porovnává lingvistický přístup k tvorbě zákonů v České republice a některých anglicky mluvících zemích. Zahrnuje stručnou charakteristiku jazyka NOZ a analýzu různých variet právnické angličtiny, stejně jako některých gramatických jevů, jež jsou pro překlad (nejen) občanského zákoníku podstatné. Třetí kapitola v pěti oddílech ukazuje praktický přístup k překládání občanského zákoníku do angličtiny. První oddíl se věnuje legislativně technickým prvkům celého zákoníku a jeho systematice; další čtyři oddíly jsou vymezeny podle částí NOZ – obecná část, rodinné právo, absolutní majetková práva a relativní majetková práva. V každém oddíle jsou vybrána ustanovení z pohledu překladu obtížnější buď kvůli volbě českých jazykových prostředků, nebo pro nejednoznačnost českého textu, jež může vést k různým interpretacím.

In Lolas Leben wimmelt es vor Krisen. Mama hat eine Baby-Krise. Tante Lisbeth hat eine Verlobungs-Krise. Und Lolas beste Freundin Flo hat eine Enzo-Krise. (Das ist eine Krise, die man bekommt, wenn ein Pflegebruder einzieht, für den die Bezeichnung "schwer erziehbar" noch harmlos ist.) Aber die gefährlichste Krise von allen hat Lola selbst: eine Identitätskrise. Sie weiß einfach nicht, was sie nachts werden soll! Nachdem sie sich als Nonne (zu langweilig) und Totengräberin (zu traurig) versucht hat, bringt ihr der Schulalltag die rettende Idee. "Das perfekte Dinner" - so heißt das Projekt, für das sich Lola begeistert anmeldet. Ab sofort sind ihre Nächte gerettet, denn als berühmte Sterneköchin Cocada Delicada macht sie mit ihren magischen Gerichten die Welt glücklicher. Ob Lolas Leben in der Wirklichkeit aber auch krisensicher bleibt, das muss sich erst noch zeigen. Die warmherzig und humorvoll erzählte Spiegel-Bestseller-Reihe der renommierten Autorin Isabel Abedi um das beliebte Mädchen Lola, ihre Familie und ihre Freunde.
