The Centre for Translation Studies at the University of Surrey is organising a one-day symposium on teaching translation and translation technology to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its MA Translation programme.
The aim of the event is to bring together tutors, academics and researchers working in the field of translation pedagogy and translation technologies, and representatives from the translation industry to debate contemporary practices in teaching translation and translation technology at University level by exploring a number of questions, including:
- To what extent are current models of teaching translation fit for purpose?
- How can/should translation practice and the acquisition of technological skills be integrated in teaching?
- What should be the scope/depth of the coverage of translation technologies in the classroom?
- How will new models of combining translation and technology in teaching shape and change students’ thinking about translation?
- What is the role of co-operation between universities and the translation industry, and what are appropriate models for this cooperation?
- What research- and practice-informed ways forward can we identify?
- Anu Carnegie-Brown (Sandberg Translation Partners, UK)
- Don Kiraly (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germersheim, Germany)
- Jaap van der Meer (TAUS, The Netherlands)
The day will be an opportunity to hear keynote talks by invited speakers as well as a number of shorter presentations, and to meet, share and discuss ideas with other participants.
Please note that that the Symposium is preceded by a one-day workshop ‘Translating with the help of corpora’ which takes place on 22 September 2016. It is organised by The Institute of Translation and Interpreting and delivered by Ana Frankenberg-Garcia.
