Abstract

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.
