This paper focuses on translators’ agency in production networks. The author approaches translators’ agency through the translators’ own experiences. She tries to find out the kind of opportunities and resources that are available to translators to exercise their agency in production networks, and more importantly, to see the way in which translators are able to act for the primary principal, i.e. the reader. In looking for answers to these questions, the author draws on her interview data that includes in-depth interviews conducted during 2005–2009 with eight Finnish translators, who, at the start of the interview process, worked for various translation companies, either as subcontractors, freelancers, or in-house translators.
