Translation Spaces is an annual, peer-reviewed journal that recognizes the
global interdisciplinary impact of translation. The journal envisions
translation as a complex set of socio-cultural spaces where people and
populations encounter one another to share knowledge, beliefs, and values.
These global spaces of encounter are virtual, as in the boundless
cyberspace of today’s Internet, and physical, as in the world’s rapidly
expanding multilingual and multicultural cities. They are also
disciplinary: arenas of discourse within which scholars explore those
social-cultural frontiers where translation practice and theory interact
most dramatically with the emerging landscape of contemporary, urban

As such, the journal actively encourages researchers from such diverse
domains as communication studies, information technology, economics and
commerce, law and government, science, and news and entertainment to engage
translation scholarship. To achieve this end, each annual edition of the
journal offers an editorial article, followed by seven academic articles
associated with the seven permanent topical tracks to appear in each annual
volume. Each year, an additional track will be designated to expand one of
the permanent tracks, or to cover a specially identified topic. The seven
permanent tracks are Translation, Globalization, and Communication
Technology; Translation, Information, Culture, and Society; Translation,
Government, Law and Policy; Translation, Computation, and Information;
Translation and Entertainment; Translation, Commerce, and Economy; and
Translation as an Object of Study.

The journal explicitly aims to stimulate an ongoing interdisciplinary and
inter-professional dialogue, online and in print, among diverse communities
of research and practice. Although the language of the print and electronic
versions of the journal will be English, the publication will provide,
through an innovative complementary web site, the means by which content
and dialogue can be translated by others in as many languages as possible,
providing a powerful contemporary channel for multilingual dialogue and
translation. The journal's innovative web site will also feature
topic-oriented blogs (one for each track), discussion/debate boards with
threaded commentary, an online interview section, scheduled online
discussion days based on the articles or papers, and a section containing
new publications and references. Full access to all the features of the web
site will be available upon subscription.
