Translation as an age old practice in human civilisation acts as a medium of dialogue in different spheres of creative expression and communication. Literary practitioners often receive translation as an essential medium of expanding literary horizons by exporting and/or importing literary texts from or to a culture or language. With the emergence of Translation Studies as a discipline in the West different aspects of translation has been explored by the scholars of different fields of study. Gradually the interfaces between translation and literature, history, culture, society, anthropology, science, film and many other fields of knowledge have been explored and established. Translation is understood as an essential medium and means of building a corpus of new literatures, medium of interpreting and communication, means of business and advertisements, tool of knowledge creation etc. Translation is not only an act or discipline but it has been proven as a language of addressing the changing socio-cultural contexts of different conjunctures of time and space. With the growing popularity of new media,different human expressions have been observed a huge paradigm shift and therefore the work of translation also has emerged as a new significance in terms of expression of the common and the creative people, marginal and the power centres, literates and the intellectuals. Current issue of Global Media Journal focuses on the wider theme of translation and media and would like to explore and address different interfaces and dialogues found in our engagements and participations with the media.
