FORUM was founded in 2003 by the joint efforts of researchers from KSCI and ESIT. It is a refereed international Translation Studies Journal, bilingual English/French, and appears twice a year. FORUM is supported by UNESCO's Clearing House for Literary Translation. The Journal's primary objective is to offer publication space to Translation Studies researchers not only from Western countries, but also from Asia, Africa and the Middle-East. The papers published in FORUM deal with a variety of issues: translation of technical texts, literature, philosophy and poetry, interpreting in its various modes, the teaching of translation and interpreting, and often offer regional points of view. They apply a variety of liberal arts or empirical methodologies.
