Communication plays a key role in today’s technology and information age. Communication involves sharing information and messages across time and space, which is realized through language. Today media and press institutions are the most important platforms where communication is realized. Such locally and interculturally influential structures are the building blocks of the communication age. During the intersocietal communication, language constitutes a barrier which is overcome through translational practices. Today international media and press institutions need to use translation to reach more people in various places. One of the international media institutions, most of which were founded in Europe in 1900s, is the British Broadcasting Corporation (the BBC). The BBC broadcasts in 27 languages, one of which is Turkish. It presents current news and information in various fields. The BBC Turkish broadcasts online, transferring up-to-date information to the Turkish readers.
