Translation quality: Research, theory and practice

You are invited to join an exclusive workshop on translation quality. This event aims to start a conversation on translation quality between researchers and the industry.

Venue: UEA London (nearest stations: Liverpool Street, Aldgate) Date: Friday 29 November 2013, 13:00-16:00

The workshop offers an opportunity to understand why there has been a gap between academic and professional communities, communicate helpful findings from recent research, identify common goals, and determine new directions for research which will have direct practical benefit in future.

The event is hosted by Dr Joanna Drugan (University of East Anglia), whose book on Quality in Professional Translation (Bloomsbury, 2013) reports on how the translation industry currently assesses and improves translation quality. Confirmed panel members are Chris Durban, professional freelance translator and author of The Prosperous Translator (Lulu, 2010), and Prof. Juliane House (Hamburg), whose ground-breaking work on Translation Quality Assessment (Gunter Narr Verlag, 1977, 1997) is the reference in the field.

Participants will be selected from the translation industry, translation clients and users, research and graduate students with an emerging interest in the field. Places are strictly limited to allow for effective networking on the day. Further details can be found at There is a nominal charge of £5 to secure a place and contribute to refreshments.
