About the Journal

Translation Matters is a twice-yearly peer-reviewed journal published by the Centre for English, Translation and Anglo-Portuguese Studies (CETAPS) of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Nova University of Lisbon. It explores all aspects of translation, ranging from the theoretical and descriptive to the practical and technical. It thus welcomes: descriptive studies of translated texts in different languages, periods, cultures and media; theoretical articles about translational issues; papers relating to the practice of translation in different domains (technical, pragmatic, literary, scientific, legal, audiovisual etc), interpreting, translator training and translation pedagogy, research methods in Translation Studies and translation technology.


It aims to be, above all, a platform for young researchers, a staging post in their trajectory to the wider world of international Translation Studies. Thus, irrespective of the editorial decision, all authors will be given advice about how their articles can be improved.
