In the wake of the current “translational turn,” the category of translation has developed far beyond its traditional linguistic and textual dimension. As a cultural practice it has become a “modus operandi of our times” (Robert Young). As an analytical category it has become a “vital meeting point” (Lawrence Venuti) of the humanities and social sciences.
