This collection of essays represents the first extended analysis of the nature and practice of modern translation into Scots. It comprises essays of two complementary kinds: reflections by translators on their practice in a given work, and critical analyses of the use of Scots in representative translations. The twelve essays cover poetry, fiction, drama and folk ballads, and translations from Greek, Latin, Chinese, Italian, French, Russian, Danish, Romanesco and Quebecois.
