Translation: Computation, Corpora, Cognition

Aims and Scope

The open access journal "Translation: Computation, Corpora, Cognition" (TC3) aims to be a platform for knowledge exchange in the field of the empirical study of translation, presenting a wide range of approaches as well as a diverse readership. The journal follows an immediate open access policy that both gives the authors control over the copyright of their ideas and facilitates a restriction-free global exchange of novel research knowledge within a short time. At the same time, the journal adheres to international quality standards by assuring a double blind peer review.

Language Policy

As is the case with many other journals, TC3 uses English as the lingua franca for articles for pragmatic reasons, which mainly concern broad dissemination (which is in our authors' best interest) and reviewing possibilities. However, we would like to contribute to fostering the richness of academic traditions in languages other than English which should be of particular interest to the field of translation studies. Moreover, we acknowledge the fact that an audience within a certain language community is sometimes best addressed in their native language, which more often than not will be a language other than English. We therefore consciously break with the widely used one-language policy and accept one paper per issue which is written in a language other than English for which we can assure a transparent double blind peer review. Accepted papers will appear in the Altera Lingua section.

Vol 3, No 1 (2013): Special Issue on Language Technologies for a Multilingual Europe

Guest editors: Georg Rehm, Felix Sasaki, Daniel Stein, and Andreas Witt

This Special Issue brings together various groups concerned with the umbrella topics of multilingualism and language technology, especially mutlilingual technologies. The contributions of this issue originate from the workshop "Language Technology for a Multilingual Europe" held at the 2011 GSCL conference in Hamburg and co-organised by two GSCL working groups (Text Technology and Machine Translation) and META-NET, an EU-funded Network of Excellence dedicated to building the technological foundations of a multilingual European informaiton society. The issue takes a wide shot at the topic of multilingual language technologies, encompassing contributions laying out research agendas, describing upcoming and future developments, and reporting on research performed within the greater circle of the META-NET alliance.
