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.

When initially published, The Paper Chase was widely acclaimed as the first novel to realistically describe the experiences of students within American law schools. The film version appeared to sensational reviews, and John Houseman, playing Professor Kingsfield won an Academy Award. Then, with Houseman again playing Kingsfield, The Paper Chase appeared as a television series on CBS. After that, the series in its entirety was re-run as a special on PBS, the first time a commercial American television series had been re-broadcast on public television. Subsequently, The Paper Chase television series was taken over by the cable network Showtime, which continued to produce new episodes. Every year, a theatrical play version of The Paper Chase is produced in regional theatres and schools across the United States. In its many incarnations, The Paper Chase has been one of the most influential books of its generation and has defined law school for millions of Americans.

If you'd love to know how to simply and effectively modify the electronic systems in your car, this book is for you. In Section 1 you'll find a step-by-step introduction to the world of car electronics. The section starts with very simple circuits but as the pages progress, you'll be introduced to volts, ohms and amps, be shown how to use a multimeter, meet analog and digital signals - and a whole lot more. And at each of these stages, there are real-world car modifications used as examples. Section 2 covers specific modifications to cars. These are wide-ranging - everything from fitting and tuning a commercial engine management signal interceptor, to adding new cabin lights, to cheaply wiring a tow-bar on a CAN bus car, to modifying electric power steering and electronic stability control. Even, the electronic modification of regen braking on a Toyota Prius! Along the way you'll find a host of interesting snippets covering things as diverse as stopping turbo boost cuts, a prebuilt module that will improve your fuel economy, upgrading to LED interior lighting, what's inside poor quality relays - and lots more. The modifications that are down-to-earth, practical, cheap and achievable - this a book that should be on every car modifier's shelf.

At last – a book for those who like to modify the aerodynamics of their road cars!In this book author Julian Edgar explores a host of practical and low-cost techniques that you can do yourself without spending a lot of money or needing special facilities. Section 1 introduces aerodynamic drag and lift. The language is simple and straightforward – but still includes concepts such as drag co-efficients, lift co-efficients and the different types of drag that affect road cars. Section 2 is devoted to aerodynamic testing – directly measuring aerodynamic pressures, and seeing airflow patterns by the use of on-road wool-tuft testing. Section 3, the largest part in the book, covers aerodynamic modification. Fitting vortex generators, testing different undertrays, reducing drag, using turning vanes in intercooler ducting – all are covered in detail. In addition, techniques are described for reducing wind noise, building an effective engine intake that breathes high-pressure cold air, siting bonnet vents in the correct location, and testing airflow through intercoolers. With nearly 300 full-colour photos and diagrams, this book is practical and down to earth – and uses techniques able to be carried out on the road.
