Social Science is a field that studies the society and the interaction amongst people. This subject is also the precedent for other fields, such as public sector, politics or even economics since it provide us the information on people’s ways of behaviour.
Social Science translation
Social science translation is usually bounded by social and cultural contexts which results in the variety of terminology used in specific situations. Specialized terms are determined by also the age as well as the ethnic and ideological within the surrounding society. Therefore, it is required that social science translators to be not only proficient in their working languages, but also possess an adequate knowledge of the discipline he/she translates (terminology, historical framework, socio-cultural context).
