Description This chapter deals with the issue of translation non-equivalence in news media contexts, adopting a general pragmatic approach in combination with a critical perspective. It argues that the centrality of translation work in the modern mediascape requires us to pay a more systematic attention to the ideological implications of (mis)translation in news production, news reception and news dissemination because such practice – be it incidental or intentional – often has tangible consequences in real life.
