This first unit has discussed what we mean by translation and Translation Studies. It has built on Jakobsons term interlingual translation and Holmess mapping of the field of Translation Studies. In truth, we are talking of an interdiscipline, interfacing with a vast breadth of knowledge, which means that research into translation is possible from many different angles, from scientific to literary, cultural and political. A threefold scope of translation has been presented, with a goal of describing the translation process and identifying trends, if not laws or universals, of translation.
