Cultural Transfer (or Transmission)[edit]

Refers to the export and import of cultural and literary information and ideas across different cultures and societies. Language translation is a popular means of cultural transfer. Cultural Transfer is similar to the concept of Cultural Convergence in the sense that it describes a process of concrete change, whether that takes place in the local, regional, or international context. However, unlike cultural convergence, cultural transfer does not result in the complete merging of cultures; rather, knowledge-sharing across cultural boundaries helps people from different cultures to better communicate with each other and leads to stronger relations.
