Cultural Translation IV

Pym now lists a number of other issues that can be included to make cultural translation more effective:

Cultural translation can draw on several wide notions of translation, particularly as developed in 1) social anthropology, where the task of the ethnographer is to describe the foreign culture, 2) actor-network theory ("translation sociology"), where the interactions that form networks are seen as translations, and 3) sociologies that study communication between groups in complex, fragmented societies, particularly those shaped by migration.

That's pretty inclusive and opens the debate up to significant input.
