Come celebrate Dr. Laura Gasca Jiménez’s book!

Translation, plurilingual competence and Spanish as a heritage language explores the connections between Spanish heritage language (SHL) education and translation competence. The volume identifies strategies to represent the linguistic experiences and practices of SHL students in the context of professional translation and interpreting training. Based on an empirical study with speakers who grew up translating and/or interpreting in their communities, this monograph provides insight on how to use translation in three ways: as a plurilingual strategy, a pedagogical activity, and a professional skill.
