Target promotes the scholarly
study of translational phenomena from a thoroughly interdisciplinary and
international point of view. Rather than reducing research on translation
to the practical questions asked by translators, their committers or their
audience, the aim is to examine the role of translation in communication
in general, with emphasis on cultural situations and theoretical, methodological
and didactic matters. Attention is given to the relationship between translation
and the societal organisation of communication. Target provides a forum
for innovative approaches to translation. It publishes original studies
on theoretical, methodological and descriptive-explanatory nature into
translation problems and corpora, reflecting various socio-cultural approaches.
The review section discusses the most important publications in the field
in order to reflect the evolution of the discipline.
