Translation Sociology II

Pym's second appeal for translation sociology within the paradigm of cultural translation.

The emphasis on translation as the formation of power relations clearly also fits in with postcolonial problematics, particularly as far as problems of agency and relations between cultural groups are concerned.

This touches on Niranjana's comments about "he who controls the language controls the people". Language and cultural differences is too often used as power levers or reasons for deploying power decisions.
