Translation Today. An Indian online translation journal, part of the site . This biannual English-language journal of the Central Institute of Indian Languages, Manasagangotri, Mysore, was started in March 2004 and has appeared twice so far (March 2005). In its first two issues, Indian authors tend to focus on general cultural and philosophical issues, most often in the context of Indian culture and languages. There is little about practical issues, no empirical studies, nothing about interpreting so far. Foreign citations are mostly those of philosophers and of some translation scholars of the “cultural turn” trend. Obviously interesting for TS scholars interested in Indian culture. In view of the well-established history of valuable Indian contributions to intellectual endeavours of all kinds, including the more practical and empirical-science oriented disciplines, this journal could be a good portal for interaction with Indian scholars in other branches of TS and an opportunity for cross-fertilization.

Transst – Gideon Toury’s publication, with useful information on new publications and news on upcoming conferences.
