Translation Studies and Transfer Studies
A plea for widening the scope of Translation Studies

Such a widening brings Translation Studies closer to the newly established related field of Transfer Studies (“Transferwissenschaften”). Reasons for this expansion are explained.
Keywords: expanding the translation concept, quality assessment, text transformations, Transfer Studies, translation theory
