Submitting a contribution


We welcome academic articles on any subject related to translation or interpreting - from all potential perspectives. We are currently able to consider contributions in English, Italian, French, German and Spanish. Other languages may be considered subject to the availability of trusted peer reviewers.


Important notice: we are aware that our response times have been too slow in the last couple of years. To address this problem we have revised our peer review process as detailed below.

Peer review process
All articles undergo a two-stage review process:

  1. The article is given a preliminary evaluation by the Editorial board. The author is informed of the outcome of this evaluation within 6 weeks of submission
  2. If the article is approved by the Editorial Board, it is then sent to two external referees for a double blind peer review. This process usually takes about 3 months, depending on the availability of suitable referees.

Article length
We encourage authors to restrict themselves to a maximum of 7,000-7,500 words including notes and references.

All submissions must include the following:

  • a short abstract both in English and in the language of the article, where applicable
  • a set of  keywords in English and in the language of the article, where applicable

In a separate document:

  • contact details and institutional address of the author(s)
  • a short biosketch of the author(s)


  • Please note that we will not consider articles that have also been submitted to other journals for consideration. And we will refuse to consider any future submissions from authors that are found to have ignored this condition.
  • Please also note that we will not accept multiple submissions. If you submit more than one article at a time then your submission will be ignored.

Please send submissions as a Word document to:
