As the field of Translation Studies begins to respond to new directions in transnational literary studies, there has been a foregrounding of topics such as the 'dependency' of minoritarian languages on dominant, vehicular ones; the links among linguistic standardization, nation-building, and the colonial export of European languages; the ways in which a global economy reinforces the imperium of English; the emergence of an international canon of books that are translation-friendly (in a market sense); and the definition of a 'translational transnationalism' in terms of diversal relations among minoritarian languages.
