Abstract and Keywords
The various chapters in this book discuss and explore the viability and social significance of adapting translation as a social intervention instrument to advance the global sustainable development agenda. It is argued that translation studies could make useful contributions to sustainable social development by engaging in translation research innovation. Existing approaches to translation studies have overlooked the function of translation as an important and powerful policy communication and research intervention instrument. However, the development of specialized translation in the healthcare, environmental, policy, and legal domains has demonstrated and will continue to have important social impacts and lasting public educational values.
