Since the 1960s, translation has not only taken on the status of a cultural reality whose mechanisms are of interest to whosoever is engaged in, or concerned by, any form of cultural practice whatsoever, but it has also increasingly been thought of as a process that operates within, and opens up, an experience of multiplicity, difference and otherness (with these three qualifications yielding, not incidentally, the coordinates of much contemporary critical thought). As such, far from being solely a technical activity restrained to the strictly linguistic field, the field encompassed by translation now extends from the relationship between texts to the relationship between systems of signs (amongst others, cultural and aesthetic ones) and, beyond this again, to practices of hybridisation (between, e.g., nature and culture), yielding new genres of being and new regimes of signs.
