Why Translation Studies matters
A pragmatist’s viewpoint
Translation Studies is challenged by Translation practitioners because of its alleged irrelevance and ineffectiveness. While it is difficult to quantify its ‘scientific’ contribution, it offers a non-negligible amount of research into relevant topics and has definitely influenced Translator training. Moreover, as an academic activity, it offers a social contribution to the Translators’ community by helping it raise its status and by facilitating the exchange of experience and information, all of this at a low cost for society.
