    As a way of concluding this thematic issue, we have created a space for our contributors to read each other’s articles and to reflect on the main theme, i.e. translating culture in global times. We invited their response to four questions that we believe are not only central to the aims of the special issue, but also encourage further dialogues on the role of translation in applied linguistics and translation as mission and practice. • How does the distinction between cultural difference and cultural diversity help us understand the way culture and translation are conceptualized and operationalized? • How does the translanguaging perspective help to understand cultural translation and what are the limitations or issues for future exploration? • What are the ethical challenges in cultural translation and how do we as applied linguists address ethical issues in cultural translation? • What implications do the new ways of understanding cultural translation debated in the special issue have for the field of applied linguistics?
