Three of Professor of Modern Languages and Literatures Steven White's students have had their work published in the top U.S. journal in the field of translation studies.

An article titled "An ABC of Translation," prepared by Justin Bland '03, of Falmouth, Massachusetts; Sylvia Mello '04, of Danvers, Massachusetts; and Tia Rabine '02, of Schenectady, New York, has been published in Issue 64 of Translation Review, from the University of Texas at Dallas. The article was originally prepared for a workshop in translation taught by White.

Started in 1978, Translation Review is published three times a year. The Review is unique in the English-speaking world. While many literary journals publish translations of the works of international authors in English translation, Translation Review focuses on the theoretical and critical aspects of transplanting a literary text from one culture into another. The pages of Translation Review present in-depth interviews with translators; articles that deal with the evaluation of existing translations; profiles on small, commercial and university publishers of foreign literature in translation; comparative studies of multiple translations into English of the same work; investigations of methodologies to develop translation workshops and courses in literary translations; and information concerning ongoing research in translation studies in the United States and abroad.
