The last decades have witnessed the burgeoning of contextual cultural and cognitive issues in translation studies (TS). TS has come to realise that it shares much with experts in other fields of linguistic and extralinguistic research and that the findings of their seminal work can be usefully integrated into an interdisciplinary (or rather multidisciplinary) conceptual framework. Hence, TS has felt the need to look beyond the confines of a predominantly text-linguistic methodology and seek new dimensions for its research by combining contextual, socio-cultural and cognitive perspectives of the translation process and the translation result.
