The Journal of Traduction et Langues TRANSLANG (Translation and Languages) is an international, double-blind peer-reviewed, biannual, free of charge and open-access journal edited by the University of Mohamed Ben Ahmed Oran 2. The published works in the journal were more directed to German with a clear orientation towards translation. From 2010 onwards, TRANSLANG becomes multidisciplinary and more languages are present: English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Russian and the work between translation and languages is balanced. In 2020, TRANSLANG is indexed, its staff is characterized by the international dimension which gives the journal more credibility. In 2022, TRANSLANG is updated and specialized in translation studies, as part of the High Quality Research (HQR) framework. The themes addressed today are particularly related to the reflection on translation as a process, especially the translation of specialized texts (technical, literary, artistic), on the interpreting process (simultaneous, consecutive, community), on the cognitive aspects of translation, history of translation, didactics and pedagogy, translatology, terminology, etc.
The journal publishes original research articles and survey articles, it aims at promoting international scholarly exchanges among researchers, academics, and practitioners to foster intercultural communication by providing insights into local and global languages and cultures. The journal is published twice a year starting from 2010, the first was edited in 2002 one issue a year by University of Oran. The journal accepts original papers, reports, and reviews in English, French, German, and Spanish.
