Since the mid-1990s globalisation has shrunk the world by removing barriers
and allowing access to information from anywhere in the world (Cronin, 2003,
p. 43), while market deregulation led to an explosion of financial
transactions and increasing business activity. In that climate, Economic
Translation -including business and financial translation- has been central in
translation practice and increasing in volume as well as impact, although it
has been little researched and discussed over the years. Yet, it constitutes a
fascinating and robust area which grows hand-in-hand with the evolution of
human civilisation and the development of societies, while its impact is felt
on every single citizen whether living in the capitalist part of the world
where the maximization of growth and the subsequent breadth of financial and
commercial transactions are sine qua non or the developing world where
Emerging Economies, albeit globalised, are still relatively small and less
affected by capitalism and consumerism.

We invite papers in English that deal with this issue's theme from various
contexts, fields, and perspectives. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following areas:

- International Business and Multilingual Communication
- Economic Translation in multilingual and/or minority settings

- Translation, re-writing and re-telling in the corporate world

- Terminology issues in Economics, including metaphors and figurative
language, neologisms, borrowings and calques, phraseology
- Business translator training
- Austerity and translation
- The translator's changing habitus
- Agency in translation
