Summary/Abstract: Translation has grown into a fully-fledged industry in the online world of the 21st century, and a professional code of ethics may help them do a quality job. Nevertheless, certain challenges must be faced, as complying with a code of ethics is neither compulsory nor does it have legal consequences. Our study discusses factors influencing professional ethics, such as the source text, clients, fellow translators and own personality. The paper ends with a few concluding remarks, followed by the references.
