Abstract:

Translation is a textual and discursive practice embedded in competing
cultural identities and language ideologies; it is a site through which we can
observe the operations and implications of language power. In this regard,
multilingual societies provide fertile ground for the exploration of
translation practice from the perspective of sociolinguistic tension.

This book examines the relationship between translation-mediated
multi-literate practice and language ideology in multilingual Singapore. It
problematises literary translation in light of the power relation between the
official languages in the city-state, with special emphasis on English and
Chinese. Based on published translations and multilingual anthologies, it
investigates the implications of such power relations for intercultural
communication through translation. The book also discusses how the
translational problems that accrue from language ideology may contribute to a
nuanced understanding of cross-lingual practice and to the realisation of
intercultural knowledge in multilingual Singapore.
