The Increase of Literal Translation: A Feature of Globalization
MetadataShow full item record
Due to globalization translation has become more vital than it has ever been in human life for the transmission of human knowledge and communication. In this paper I argue, by means of an analytical and deductive approach that it is literal translation in particular that is gaining pace. The aim of translation has become that of speed and cost-effectiveness, which resulted in numerous translation errors. The increase of literal translation can also be attributed to the global impact of the Lingua Franca-language of the global village.
