EST 2012—A vision fulfilled?
The essay traces the position of the EST within the discipline of Translation Studies since the Society was established in 1992. The main emphasis is on the original objectives (as laid down in the Constitution) along with the changes naturally brought about by technological and sociological developments over the last twenty years. These involve the character of EST, the role of International English and the significance of Translation Studies, for which tentative prognoses are sketched in conclusion.
