A guest issue of Perspectives. Studies in Translatology
Editors: Łucja Biel (University of Warsaw) and Vilelmini Sosoni (Ionian University)
Since the mid-1990s globalisation has shrunk the world by removing barriers and allowing access to information from anywhere in the world (Cronin, 2003, p. 43), while market deregulation led to an explosion of financial transactions and increasing business activity. In that climate, Economic Translation -including business and financial translation- has been central in translation practice and increasing in volume as well as impact, although it has been little researched and discussed over the years. Yet, it constitutes a fascinating and robust area which grows hand-in-hand with the evolution of human civilisation and the development of societies, while its impact is felt on every single citizen whether living in the capitalist part of the world where the maximization of growth and the subsequent breadth of financial and commercial transactions are sine qua non or the developing world where Emerging Economies, albeit globalised, are still relatively small and less affected by capitalism and consumerism.
