Centre for Translation Studies

The Centre for Translation Studies (CTS) is a centre of excellence dedicated to cutting-edge research, scholarship and teaching in translation, interpreting and other forms of inter- and intra-lingual communication.

Our mission

As human practices of translation and interpreting are increasingly supported, enhanced and sometimes replaced by technologies, our vision is to promote a human-centric approach to technology use in translation and interpreting. Following our 2019 Expanding Excellence in England (E3) award, we aim to create an interdisciplinary centre for translation, interpreting and related forms of communication by bringing together traditional human-based research practices with cutting-edge advances in artificial intelligence.

Our research

Our research focuses on integrating our knowledge about how human translators and interpreters approach their task and how they interact with and through technologies with research into the automation of these practices.
