Abstract
This presentation provides an introduction to the problematics of translation across languages and cultures in accounting. It contrasts the 'translation turn' in other disciplines with the almost complete silence on translation in accounting.  While this silence applies, to varying degrees, to accounting standard setting and implementation, the translation of annual reports, inter-firm communication, accounting education and accounting research, the main concern of this presentation is on the latter - in particular on inter-cultural translation and translanguaging in qualitative accounting research.
