Third IATIS Regional Workshop-Serbia

Third IATIS Regional Workshop – Western Balkans

Translator and Interpreter Training

25-26 September 2014

Organised by: Faculty of Philosophy, University of Novi Sad, Serbia

 

The main focus of this two-day conference is translator and interpreter academic education and professional training. There are several areas that are of importance for this region. The trends that need to be addressed in training but are insufficiently present in current educational programmes, include: a) Field/domain specialization; b) Technical skills (including pre-/post-editing of MT); c) Revision skills; d) Management skills (soft skills); e) Standards of compliance (especially through teamwork); f) Translation Ethics; and g) Translator’s in/visibility.

There is also a perceived need to include modules in translation curricula that consolidate different functional styles and registers of the students’ mother tongue. Training in translation into B language is also very relevant, especially for this part of Europe since such translations have a good market-share.

Another very important issue is to instill pride in the profession by establishing proper accreditation and recognition models.

Therefore, we would like to invite papers exploring any of the following sub-themes: 

  • Translation and Interpreting Curricula
  • Technology Literacy in Translation
  • Professional Accreditation and Recognition of Translators
  • Assessment in Translation and Interpreting for Pedagogical Purposes
  • Current Trends in Translation and Interpreting Training: Methodology, Materials and Internship
  • Training in Professional Settings
  • Challenges and Prospects in Translation and Interpreting Studies
  • Translation Ethics
  • Editing and Revision Procedures: Current and Best Practice
  • Training in Soft Skills
  • Training for Translation into Language B

Keynote Speakers:

 

  • Mona Baker (University of Manchester, UK)
  • Anca Greere (University of Cluj, Romania)
  • Nataša Pavlović (University of Zagreb, Croatia)

 

Papers accepted for the parallel sessions will be allocated 30 minutes in the program, which includes 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for questions/discussion.

Proposals for workshops of one and a half hour sessions will be considered. Particpants can also make poster presentations of research they are currently undertaking.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is December 1, 2013. Authors of the accepted papers will be notified by March 1, 2014.
