Found in Translation: How Language Shapes Our Lives and Transforms the World by Nataly Kelly
Anyone with an interest in languages – both spoken and signed – will enjoy this book. Kelly and Zetzsche demonstrate how technology and translation help build communities and expand the quest for knowledge on virtually every subject.
As they observe, ‘Right this very minute, translation is saving lives, perhaps even yours. Without language diversity, we would be intellectually impoverished, and with it we are enriched.

The authors have managed to entertain, inform, and show how translation impacts all aspects of translaation life, fojnd health to business to entertainment and technology, all supported with real-life examples.
During times of peace, battles are won in conference rooms — and those who can most clearly communicate their messages win.

With information now flowing both globally and instantaneously, translators and interpreters have already ascended into the ranks of the indispensable.
