The author of this book insightfully captures the spirit of the age with the key concepts he tackles like ethics, cultural environment, professionalism, translator competence, standards, sustainability, T and I services, marketing, interdisciplinarity, and the corpus of the Australian case in professionalism set as a successfully working model.

Oktay Eser’s work will fill the gap not only in the field of translation studies as a new subfield of study, which demontrates translation as institution, but also in the market as a sustainable model for the translation sector. In short, this work opens up new horizons of knowledge in the field of Translation Studies, and I congratulate Oktay Eser for his success in introducing a new subfield of study in Translation Studies.
