Abstract:

Translation is living through a period of revolutionary upheaval. The effectsof digital technology and the internet on translation are continuous,widespread and profound. From automatic online translation services to therise of crowdsourced translation and the proliferation of translation Apps forsmartphones, the translation revolution is everywhere. The implications forhuman languages, cultures and society of this revolution are radical andfar-reaching. In the Information Age that is the Translation Age, new ways oftalking and thinking about translation which take full account of the dramaticchanges in the digital sphere are urgently required.

Michael Cronin examines the role of translation with regard to the debatesaround emerging digital technologies and analyses their social, cultural andpolitical consequences, guiding readers through the beginnings oftranslation's engagement with technology, and through to the key issues thatexist today.

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