1998). In a more militant vein, some ‘empirical linguists’ are using the new data on usage to challenge the tenets of a hitherto dominant linguistics seen as based on invented utterances and preoccupied only with inferring abstract universals (Sampson 2001). The flowering of corpus linguistics inspired a similar empirical turn in translation studies, in which a strong impetus was given by Mona Baker and her colleagues in Manchester (Baker 1995). In its first two computer-aided decades, CTS has initially focused on product rather than process, exploring the characteristics of translations as texts, or the patterning specific to translational language.

Finally, in applied CTS, corpora are being widely and systematically used in translator training, particularly in the ‘translation praxis classroom’ (Kiraly 2000, 2003), where they constitute valuable resources for retrieving and examining lexical, terminological, phraseological, syntactical and stylistic equivalents (Bowker and Pearson 2002; Bowker 2003; Koby and Baer 2003). They are also employed to acquire subject-specific knowledge, Corpus-Based Translation Studies 25 to evaluate translation quality, and as essential components of ComputerAided Translation Technology (Bowker 2000; 2001; Koby and Baer 2003).

If we regard the notion of translation universal not as an absolute principle that can explain translation strategies in every single circumstance, but as a descriptive construct, an open-ended working hypothesis about “similarities, regularities, patterns that are shared between particular cases or groups of cases” (Chesterman 2004: 33), it will, I believe, unveil more and more aspects of the variegated nature of translation products and processes and their complex relationships with culture. It will also allow us ‘to see both similarities and differences in a perspective that increases our understanding of the whole picture, and also of how this picture relates to other pictures’ (Chesterman 2004: 33).
