Answer:

Say, for example, the relevant cultural systems are SC literature, TC literature, TC publishing, and TC translated literature. Information about these systems could be provided by books and articles about the particular systems. For translated literature it would be useful too to look at examples of the actual translated texts, and actors such as publishers/editors could be surveyed (if contemporary).

With regard to individual situations of production, there may be information in translator’s prefaces, and translators could be asked to provide information in questionnaires or interviews (if contemporary).
