Training and development professionals are faced with a host of responsibilities and goals that can be met only if they integrate the latest thinking in the field with their own experience and thereby develop a new arsenal of skills and knowledge. The contributors to this volume, all of whom have extensive professional, consulting, and/or research experience in the training field, thoroughly examine the leading training issues by speaking straightforwardly to the training practitioner. These issues include the strategic linkage of training to business objectives, the determination of training needs, transfer of training, training technologies, holistic training and development, and the multiple roles of the professional trainer. The contributors provide the training and development professional with pertinent frameworks, revealing examples and real-life cases, specific recommendations, and various application ideas. References are provided throughout to support key findings, to point the reader toward the most promising and relevant training research, and to provide a comprehensive resource base that would be a valuable addition to any trainer's personal library. In addition to external and internal training professionals, students and instructors of human resource management, instructional systems technology, and industrial/organizational psychology will benefit from the contributors' insights.

Many "translation solutions" (often called "procedures," "techniques," or "strategies") have been proposed over the past 50 years or so in French, Chinese, Russian, Ukrainian, English, Spanish, German, Japanese, Italian, Czech, and Slovak. This book analyzes, criticizes and compares them, proposing a new list of solutions that can be used in training translators to work between many languages.
The book also traces out an entirely new history of contemporary translation studies, showing for example how the Russian tradition was adapted in China, how the impact of transformational linguistics was resisted, and how scholarship has developed an intercultural metalanguage over and above the concerns of specific national languages.
The book reveals the intensely political nature of translation theory, even in its most apparently technical aspects. The lists were used to advance the agendas of not just linguistic nationalisms but also state regimes - this is a history in which Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all played roles, Communist propaganda and imperialist evangelism were both legitimized, Ukrainian advances in translation theory were forcefully silenced in the 1930s, the Cold War both stimulated the application of transformational grammar and blocked news of Russian translation theory, French translation theory was conscripted into the agenda of Japanese exceptionalism, and much else.
Western Medicine as seen today has a strong scientific basis in its development. The pathogenesis of most diseases and their symptomatology and physical signs are well studied and understood. The management of patients is based on firm understanding of these disease processes. In contrast, Traditional Chinese Medicine came about through the experience of many generations of practitioners over thousands of years. Undoubtedly, many of these treatments have proved to be effective in their own way, however, firm scientific basis is still lacking.
