This collection explores the central importance of values and evaluative concepts in cross-cultural translational encounters. Written by a group of international scholars from a diverse range of linguistic and cultural backgrounds, the chapters in this book consider what it means to translate cultures by examining core values and their relationship to key evaluative concepts (such as authenticity, clarity, home, honour, or justice) and how they influence the complex multidimensional process of translation. This book will be of interest to academics studying cross-cultural and inter-linguistic interactions, to translators and interpreters, students of translation and of modern languages, and all those dealing with multilingual and multicultural settings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Showing a predominantly theoretical and philosophical orientation, Translating Values gives food for thought about abstract notions such as culture as an identity shaper, or the burning issue of our stance towards alterity. ... Translating Values might find its place on the reading lists of cultural and translation studies scholars." (Andrea Stojilkov, Target, Vol. 29 (2), 2017)
