Translation plays a significant role for accomplishing an effective communication in the era of globalization. Through translation, communication becomes easier between people of different languages. These days, more often than before, we get in contact with foreigners wherever we go and the only means through which effective communication can take place since we do not speak the same language with the foreigners is, translation or interpretation. Translation therefore, is one of the apparatus for achieving effective communication in this global era. It helps in mediating and bridging the distance between people, languages and the multicultural world thereby enhancing effective communication. As a result of translation, people have become familiar with various linguistic communities and cultures; it is a key factor and a necessity in the multicultural world we live. However, in order to achieve effective communication through translation globally, a good knowledge of two or more foreign languages is required. This paper examines translation and its relevance or roles for attaining effective communication in this era where the world is now seen as a global village.
