He edited two further volumes on the translation of wordplay: Wordplay and Translation (special issue of The Translator, 1996) and Traductio. Essays on Punning and Translation (1997). Dirk has co-authored three dictionaries of literary terms: Lexicon van Literaire Termen (seventh edition, 2007), Dictionnaire des termes littéraires (2001, paperback 2005) and Algemeen Letterkundig Lexicon (open access at Digitale Bibliotheek voor de Nederlandse Letteren (DBNL): http://www.dbnl.org/tekst/dela012alge01_01/). His other book-length publications include European Shakespeares (co-edited with Lieven D’hulst, 1993), Vertalen Historisch bezien. Tekst, metatekst, theorie (co-edited with Theo Hermans, 1995), Fictionalizing Translation and Multilingualism (special issue of Linguistica Antverpiensia NS, co-edited with Rainier Grutman, 2005), Shakespeare and European Politics (co-edited with Jozef de Vos and Paul Franssen, 2008), Multilingualism in the Drama of Shakespeare and His Contemporaries (special issue of English Text Construction, co-edited with Ton Hoenselaars, 2013, republished as a book in 2015), and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in European Culture (co-edited with Juan F. Cerdá and Keith Gregor, 2017).

Dirk was one of the founding members of ESRA (European Shakespeare Research Association). From 2013 to 2019 he edited the Translation Studies journal Target (first with Sandra Halverson, then with Haidee Kotze). In 2017 he created the book series Shakespeare in European Culture (with Keith Gregor). Dirk was a guest professor in English literature at the Université catholique de Louvain from 2010 to 2013.
