UTB's First International Translation Day Colloquium seeks to
discuss a number of key aspects related to the practice of
translation and interpreting in professional settings as they
impinge on different areas of specialization, such as literary
translation, court interpreting, and sign language interpreting.

Three experts from across the state of Texas will bring their
insights to the colloquium: Dr. Marko Miletich (University of
Texas at Arlington), Dr. Melissa Wallace (University of Texas at
San Antonio), and Professor Rosemary Liñan-Landa
(University of Texas at Brownsville).

Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Elena Fernández-Miranda
(Directorate General for Translation, European Commission), who
will present her latest publication: Sobre la traducción
(Cátedra, 2012), a Spanish translation of two foundational
