International Award for Professor Sabine Braun
The John Sykes Memorial Prize recognises outstanding contributions to the world of translation and interpreting over a long period.
This award highlights Professor Braun’s long-standing dedication and commitment to the teaching of professional translation and interpreting studies and for her pioneering research into human-machine interaction in translation and interpreting.
She is a Professor of Translation Studies and Director of the Centre for Translation Studies as well as co-director of the Surrey Institute for People-Centred Artificial Intelligence.
Her research explores human-machine interaction in translation across languages and modes of communication. For over 10 years she has led a cross-disciplinary research programme to improve access to justice for linguistically diverse populations through interpreting via video-mediated interpreting. She is also investigating uses of AI technologies to improve access to audiovisual media for diverse audiences.
