Multi-Disciplinary 1 Day National Seminar

Translation in Contemporary Scenario

28 April, 2014


Translation studies as an independent genre/discipline is gaining currency in the wake of spread of knowledge. The constantly increasing love and demand for translation the world over as brought about a sea change in the concept and character of translation. From linguistic to textual and moving on to present cultural theories on translation studies, the debate of translation is raising fresh questions on translation. Hence, words like translation, transliteration, transcreation, substitution or transference of content/ meaning from source language to target language need to be understood in the right perspective.
