Empirical translation and multilingual communication represent highly interdisciplinary research areas. This series welcomes original translation and multilingual studies which use language corpora or digital language resources to advance our understanding of the nature and social function of translation and multilingual communication as an essential part of our globalised world. Empirical language studies in this series cover research topics from literary to specialised and domain-specific translations to bring insights into translation as a process and phenomenon which operates at cross-lingual, inter-cultural or trans-disciplinary levels. This series prioritises submissions which are theoretically informed and methodologically innovative through for example, the interaction of translation studies with cognate research fields such as media studies, comparative area studies, science and technology, health, international politics, public health, international business, etc.
