James Holmes’ classic map of translation studies (TS) (1988) rapidly became one of the foundations of contemporary descriptive TS. It largely reflected the traditional focus on translations as texts or products. However, contemporary research on translation has long been concerned with issues that go beyond purely textual or linguistic ones, and this general perspective seems to be on the increase as the field broadens.
