Salford Response to Letter from IATIS

Dear Professor Williams

Thank you for writing to me to convey the concerns of the International Association of Translation and Intercultural StudiesOur decision to phase out Modern and Foreign Language teaching, along with the associated disciplines of translating and interpreting, has been difficult and painful and has been made by our University Council after careful consideration of all other options.

Dear Professor Hall,

As a group of international scholars in the field of Translation and Intercultural Studies we urge you to reconsider your plans to disestablish the School of Humanities, Languages and Social Sciences at Salford University in the United Kingdom and close down its language, linguistics, translation and interpreting degree provision, on UG and PG level, over the next few years.
