Descriptive Summary: This book advocates a paradigm shift in translation studies to close the gap between translation theory and practice. By analyzing five aspects of globalization and their respective impact on translation practice, Dr. George Ho, a former professional translator with more than 15 years’ translation experience, indicates that globalization has changed the mainstream of translation practice from canonical translation to professional translation. Therefore, it is justifiable to posit a paradigm shift in translation studies to meet the demand of and challenges for the translation profession and industry impacted by globalization.
