Clear Spanish Text in a Foreign Land: Is It Possible?

Presenter: Helen Eby
How does a Spanish editor or translator approach working on a text for a Spanish-speaking audience in a country like the US where Spanish is not the dominant language? Standards are set by those who use Spanish in daily communication. Translators and editors must spend time with this group to find ways to write text that communicates clearly without sounding awkward, balancing prescriptive and descriptive approaches carefully. Helen will present her book on this topic.
