NEW YORK - Jan. 11, 2022 - PRLog -- It should also be considered that each society speaking a language has its own culture, history, and philosophy. And we can say that each language is affected by different societies in different areas, or it affects different societies. Considering that language interaction affects such a wide area, it cannot be expected that any research ignoring language interaction.

It is a must to do language research for understanding different cultures and histories in the world we live in. At the point where language research and interactions are mentioned, translation studies knock on the door. Translation studies, a relatively new field, were laid by Holmes in the mid-20th century. Thanks to translation studies, the effect of language on society can be analyzed and discussed in more detail.

"Translation Studies", what is it?

Translation studies is a field that can be defined as interdisciplinary. Translation studies deal with the systematic theorizing, understanding, and application of translation and interpretation. It would not be wrong to summarize it as the scientific form of translating. However, while translating is defined as simply transferring from one language to another, translation studies examine the effects of language in every possible field.
To sum up the answer to the question of "What is translation science?" in one sentence, we can say that translation studies is an academic field that examines intercultural interaction.
