    question

    Hi I have read this text on a book and I have a question:

    "In addition to governments and other politically motivated institutions,Venuti insists that groups and social institutions would include the various players in the publishing industry.These would be the publishers and editors who choose the works,commission the translations and pay the translators."


    My question is why the writer says" the works,the translations,the translators"
    and he does not omit the article since he does not talk about something specific .


    Thank you

    Re: question

    In my opinion, the author used " the" is correct though he might not mention anything relating to works or translates previously. Because it is the author's intention to express or make his ideas remarkable
