Translation and technology

Akiko Sakamoto

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


Chapter 3 describes major advances in translation technologies and explains how these have influenced our understanding of translation, particularly the concept of translation quality and the translation production process. Sakamoto argues that these changes have created a rift between translation studies theories and a new notion of translation circulating in the industry. The chapter identifies new trends in translation studies research which seek to develop new knowledge to address this rift.
