Corpus-based Translation Studies JINGQI LI

According to Olohan, what issues is Corpus-based Translation Studies confronted with? How can these be compared with the use of corpora in corpus linguistics?

My little introduction

First, "the concept of 'translation' itself."

Second, “the universality of translation as an activity.”

Third, “features and norms of translation”.

My little conclusion...
