Text and translation research is a broad concept which includes many disciplines within its practice, and comprises a wide range of areas of research and scholarship. The disciplines involved are associated with the interpretation, translation, production, editing, dissemination, preservation and transmission of texts. Research may range from the study of alphabets and handwriting styles, the composition, textual editing and compilation of manuscripts and books, the language and editing of electronic resources, and the techniques of manuscript preservation. It includes the practices involved in oral composition and the analysis of written texts; the study of texts in their original language and the translation of texts from one language to another.
