Translation in the Global Village

Edited by Christina Sch�ffner
(Aston University, Birmingham)

KEY FEATURES
- Discusses the effects of globalisation on language use
- Considers the position of Translation Studies today and where it is
 going

DESCRIPTION
Recent developments, particularly globalisation and advances in
technology, have affected our production and perception of language,
as reflected in two conflicting forces, globalism and tribalism. The
role of English as an international lingua franca is discussed, and
conclusions are drawn for the varying activities of translation today
and for the rapidly changing job profile of the translator.
