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.

'An entertaining legal dictionary with a difference.' – BabyBarista website 'Intellectual property has a vast, perplexing and diverse vocabulary, and this enriching Dictionary provides a starting point for understanding new concepts and crafting precise definitions to meet the needs of a particular case. . . well worth a read.' – IPKat 'Dr Groves set himself the monumental task of assembling a work that would be both a dictionary of the most important terms in intellectual property law and a ready resource for IP students and practitioners worldwide. He has succeeded admirably: his book not only covers the field but also glitters with unexpected delights (the entry on "goodwill" is a must-read). This compendium is essential for the desktop (or laptop) of anyone whose work involves intellectual property.' – Robert C. Cumbow, Graham & Dunn PC, US 'Confused between community patent review and community patents? Lost in a thicket of dockets, rocket or otherwise? Let Peter Groves' Dictionary of Intellectual Property Law be your guide. Filling almost 500 often lighthearted, occasionally acerbic, but invariably fact-packed pages, the book takes you from the ActionAid Chip and the Air Pirates case through BIRPI, Cognating, Dockets, Evergreening; Jepson, Pedrick's cat and Simkins; PHOSITA, Trundlehumpers, the verb "to Uncopyright" and X-Patents, all the way to Zwart maken. Essential reading.' – David Musker, Partner, RGC Jenkins & Co. 'Do not be put off by the word "dictionary". This is a fascinating, witty and erudite little volume, packed with interesting and useful information on the whole gamut of intellectual property. It leaves one (this one anyway) hungering for more and wanting to delve more deeply into fields that have nothing to do with earning one's daily bread.' – Tony McStea, Senior Patent Attorney, Global Patents, Givaudan Schweiz AG 'This work is splendid. As an intellectual property litigator I ask, "why did no-one do it before"? Was it for lack of the creative idea, or did no-one have the diligence and erudition of Peter Groves to perfect it? and now that it has been done, we will wonder how we managed without it.' – Jonathan Turner, Barrister Intellectual property has a vast, perplexing and diverse vocabulary, and this enriching Dictionary provides a starting point for understanding new concepts and crafting precise definitions to meet the needs of a particular case. Not only are new words and phrases being coined as technology changes and the law follows, but also the international scope of intellectual property means that IP lawyers will encounter foreign words and phrases. With over 1000 expressions defined clearly and entertainingly, this book should be the first reference point to understanding intellectual property terminology. It will be particularly helpful to practitioners when they encounter expressions they have not seen before which they need to understand the true meaning and definition of. Students finding unfamiliar terminology and concepts will also appreciate the instant explanation available from this essential resource.
