12th Portsmouth Translation Conference

12th Portsmouth Translation Conference



Keynote speakers: Prof.  Dorothy Kelly (University of Granada)

Daniel Toudic (University Rennes II)


Conference Theme: ‘Those Who Can, Teach’: Translation, Interpreting and Training
Date: 10 November 2012
Place: Park Building, University of Portsmouth


These are challenging times for translator and interpreter training. The past 40 years have seen big changes in translator training with a shift towards greater professionalization, an explosion in the number of courses, and also a shift towards lifelong learning and continuing professional development. Translator training has also moved, in part, out of the seminar room into the virtual teaching environment. The industry and student professional needs are also changing very fast.


 

The themes covered in this twelfth annual Portsmouth Translation Conference are:


  • Best practice for practical translation workshops

  • Translator training and cognition

  • Translators, interpreters and CPD

  • Translator and interpreting training online (distance learning)

  • Training the trainer

  • The role of professional organisations

  • The role of professionals

  • Relevance of translation theory in and outside the classroom

  • Employability

  • Clients need educating too!
