Publication language


Moving beyond the notion of content in thinking about language and translation, this book is an attempt to face the demands of translation and multilingual text production by modeling texts as configurations of multidimensional meanings, rather than as containers of content. It is a recurrent argument in this book that unstructured and one-dimensional notions of content are insufficient for an understanding of the processes involved in translation and multilingual text production. Rather than using the assumption of some stable, unchanged content in modeling the processes in focus, the editors and contributors to this volume rely on the notion of meaning, a concept that allows us to recognize multidimensionality and internal stratification.
