Live Event - Via Zoom online
In this webinar, we will outline the contextual parameters of community translation as a language service empowering minority or minoritized language groups. We will then discuss arrangements and strategies to ensure quality and impactful translations for target communities.
The focus will be mainly on community translators, but quality assurance will also be discussed in relation to other stakeholders.
