Tuomi’s notion of translation

Translation is a reductive process by which the complexity of networks becomes reified.

“… the point of translation … becomes a locus of power and control.”

“… the ongoing processes of translation are key sources of social order.” 

“Translation generates ordering effects, such as organisations, institutions, devices, and agents.”
