About MTM Journal
MTM Journal is a new international refereed journal with an Editorial Board comprised of leading scholars in the field of translation studies. MTM aims at starting and promoting a discussion on the particularities of translation from major into minor languages and vice versa, as well as of translation between minor languages.
By the term minor language, we mean either a language of limited diffusion or one of intermediate diffusion compared to a major language or language of unlimited diffusion.
By the term major language, we mean either a language of unlimited diffusion such as English, or a language that enjoys major status within a state where other, officially recognised minor languages are also spoken (e.g. Finnish as an official language in Finland compared to Swedish).
MTM will be published provisionally as one volume per year.
All articles must be accompanied by an abstract of about 200 words in English.
