dc.description.abstractTranslation Studies has long been considered an interdiscipline. This paper argues that the next logical stage in the development of its applied branches is transdisciplinarity, which refers to research that bridges the gap between scientific knowledge production and societal knowledge demand as “an integral component of innovation and problem-solving strategies in the life-world” (Hoffmann-Riem et al. 2008: 3). It offers a viable framework for empirical research in professional contexts and settings, transcending disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches by bringing together researchers, communities of practice and their organisations in active, collaborative problem-solving directed at real-world issues. The essential situatedness of professional translation strongly suggests that it should be investigated in situ if it is to be properly described and understood. Viewing the interdisciplinarity of empirical translation research as a stepping-stone towards its inherent potential for transdisciplinarity, the current paper proposes a model of transdisciplinary action research as an explicit, structured framework in which to investigate professional processes and practices in the situated sociotechnical contexts of translators’ workplaces.
