This volume gathers contributions representing the main trends in translation and interpreting studies by authors in the Iberian peninsula, with a focus on the Iberian languages (Basque, Catalan, Portuguese/Galician and Spanish). The essays cover different methodologies and objects of analysis, including traditional textual and historical approaches as well as contemporary methods, such as cultural, sociological, cognitive and gender-oriented perspectives. This seemingly eclectic approach pivots around seven focal points that aim to reflect the most frequent research topics in the Iberian peninsula:

(i) theoretical and methodological approaches;

(ii) translation and interpreting training;

(iii) historical perspectives;

(iv) terminology;

(v) rapidly evolving fields in the translation and interpreting industry, such as localization and public service interpreting;

(vi) translation of literature; and

(vii) translation studies journals.
