(p.169) Conclusion
Imperial Babel

Padma Rangarajan

Fordham University Press

The conclusion touches on the complexities of contemporary translation, from the consequences of English’s global dominance to the implications of machine-translation services like Google Translate. Referencing the complex translative history of the Mahabharata, the conclusion argues that in the struggle between monolingual globalization and a more heterogeneous alterglobalization, the history of nineteenth-century translation provides both a diagnostic history and a possible solution.
