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.

The Łódź-ZHAW Duo Colloquium on Translation and Meaning is a successor to the
internationally acclaimed event with the same concept, organised in Maastricht and Łódź
from 1990 to 2015. The theme of the Duo Colloquium 2020/2021 is Contextuality in
Translation and Interpreting. The Łódź session of the Faculty of Philology of the University
of Łódź held online from 3-5 December 2020 focused on theoretical aspects
(http://www.duo.uni.lodz.pl). The ZHAW session will be hosted by the Institute of Translation
and Interpreting from 2-4 September 2021 in Winterthur and approaches applied aspects of
the theme (www.zhaw.ch/iued/duo).
