Publication language


In this chapter, the author talks about his own experience as a broadcast journalist and focuses on the fact that, if we believe that language precedes culture, it is fair to say that the journalist is a vital part of the process by which culture shifts and changes. This is very much how translators also see their role in society. In this sense, translators and journalists have more in common than they are prepared to recognise.
