Abstract:

Translation is living through a period of revolutionary upheaval. The effects
of digital technology and the internet on translation are continuous,
widespread and profound. From automatic online translation services to the
rise of crowdsourced translation and the proliferation of translation Apps for
smartphones, the translation revolution is everywhere. The implications for
human languages, cultures and society of this revolution are radical and
far-reaching. In the Information Age that is the Translation Age, new ways of
talking and thinking about translation which take full account of the dramatic
changes in the digital sphere are urgently required.

Michael Cronin examines the role of translation with regard to the debates
around emerging digital technologies and analyses their social, cultural and
political consequences, guiding readers through the beginnings of
translation's engagement with technology, and through to the key issues that
exist today.

With links to many areas of study, Translation in the Digital Age is a vital
read for students of modern languages, translation studies, cultural studies
and applied linguistics.
