This cross-disciplinary review article provides an overview of previous studies on minority

language translation by combining Translation Studies with language revitalization research and

the study of the multilingual practices of minority language speakers. The article explores possible

links between these three areas of research that, so far, have shown relatively little interest in a

cross-disciplinary approach, and hopes thus to contribute to a better understanding of the different

types and status of minority languages as well as the diverse roles of translation and interpreting

for their speakers.
