This quantity offers with principal questions of the hot area and goals to give a contribution to the conceptualisation of a basic sociology of translation.

Drawing on methodologies from sociology and integrating them into translation stories, the publication questions many of the confirmed different types during this self-discipline and demands a redefinition of long-assumed ideas. The contributions exhibit the social involvement of translation in a number of fields and concentration in particular at the translator’s place in an rising sociology of translation, Bourdieu’s impression in conceptualising this new sub-discipline, methodological questions and a sociologically orientated meta-discussion of translation reviews.
