"Home is where I understand and where I am understood, wrote Karl Jaspers once. If this home today is our globalised world, then its mother tongue cannot be but a translation, both linguistically and culturally. (…) It is time for a new challenge. Is it possible to articulate the emerging trans-national culture of translation in non-cultural terms or, in other words, are we able to translate a trans-national cultural space into a common trans-cultural political action?"
