In the rise of Translation Studies, an enabling development has been 'the cultural turn in Translation Studies', from about 1990 onwards. But no less significant is the unrequited plea, made in 1998, for a corresponding 'translation turn in cultural studies'. In fact, a new term has come into currency, 'cultural translation', which, as theorised by Bhabha and Lahiri, means no more than the representation of migration and diaspora, in just the one global language, English. But this growing monolingualism may forebode, paradoxically, the very end of translation as we have known it, as a transaction between two languages and cultures.
