International Award for Professor Sabine Braun

Professor Sabine Braun from the School of Literature and Languages has been awarded the John Sykes Memorial Prize by the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI).

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.
