I think it’s fair to say that in the language industry we regard translation as the foundation stone of our business. With translation, we facilitate communication between sources and targets with a growing skillset of ancillary activities that are making extraordinary achievements in uniting our world. Imagine my complete astonishment when I recently learned about a project that is recording a language without any plans for translation into other languages. Furthermore, this project is working with a language that we would label endangered.

When we go to the super-market to stock up, the one item we’re mostly oblivious to is the shopping cart. That’s the way I think of us in the language community and our place in the global business marketplace. Without us, corporate and cultural “shoppers” would have their arms full and have to leave stuff on the shelf. With us, we facilitate a real shopping spree. But we don’t seem to receive the credit for our critical role in facilitating commerce around the world.

Seneca, the Roman dramatist and rhetorician, wrote, “You will greatly enhance your reputation if you give old words new meaning.” No language stays the same and neither do the tools we use nor our community. Everything changes. We constantly coin new words and phrases, extend the meaning of the words we use and drop archaic ones. Supposedly dead languages like Latin find new life in the hands of enthusiasts as they update and innovate.

Each and every day, millions of translators, interpreters and computers somehow manage to do a great day’s work facilitating communication across the globe, perhaps with varying degrees of satisfaction, but with enough to live life and get up the next day to do the same thing all over again. How is this possible?

How often these days are we asked for our ID? Doctors, hospitals, airlines, traffic cops and even some stores when we are paying up. They all want to verify that we are who we say we are, to establish that our identity is correct. But identities extend the individual. We have national identities, group identities, corporate identities and so on. Our friends in marketing are currently in love with ideas like platform identity that define a presence beyond branding.

Imagine connecting all the elements of life from the Creator to the dust of the earth in a single hierarchical structure. That’s what classical and mediaeval philosophers sought to do. They termed it ‘The Great Chain of Being.’ This idea dominated scientific and theological thinking for centuries. However, as method-based scientific investigation along with new paradigms of structuring nature began to revolutionize knowledge in the Renaissance and Enlightenment, the Great Chain of Being became little more than an historical curiosity.

Communities don’t just spring into life with thousands of members and well-defined goals and the resources to implement them. Communities grow from modest beginnings, morphing and taking on their own identity as they evolve. There are no end of communities out there in the world in many divergent forms. We could examine any of them, but our findings would be retrospective. Fortunately, however, in our language community, we have a newly-formed community that makes an ideal case study to help us understand just how the processes of development can start and take shape.
