You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Selected papers will be published.

Deadline for abstracts: 15 December 2010

Date: 2010-10-26
Venue: web-based; organised by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación (ETSIT)
Event theme(s): The MultilingualWeb project aims to explore standards and best practices that support the creation, localisation and use of multilingual web-based information.

Through a series of workshops open to the public and various communication channels, the project will spread information about what standards and best practices currently exist, and what gaps need to be filled.

The first of these workshops will take place in Madrid, Spain on 26-27 October and will be hosted by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación (ETSIT), which is located in "Ciudad Universitaria", a university campus in the west part of Madrid.

Objective: Survey and share information about currently available best practices and standards that can help content creators and localizers address the needs of the multilingual Web, including the Semantic Web. Look for gaps that need to be addressed. Network and share information between the various different communities involved in enabling the multilingual Web.

Date: 2012-03-08
Venue: Moncton (New Brunswick, Canada)
Event theme(s): This conference wishes to provide an opportunity for translation studies scholars to present and exchange research findings on the specifics of translation and interpretation in officially multilingual contexts, and the "translation effects" (Simon 1996) generated. Many of the world's countries are in fact officially multilingual. The conference programme will ideally include papers that explore an aspect of the interaction between translation and official multilingualism in the countries mentioned above as well as in others that were not included in the list.

Accepted papers will enable conference delegates to reflect on the following questions: Do official multilingualism and translation operate and interact in the same or similar ways in these countries? Does the humanist ideal of translation serve to create a common culture in contexts of official multilingualism (Simon 1996) or does it rather serve to divide the constituent cultures through the incompleteness of translation potential resulting in missed encounters between the socio-linguistic groups that are represented in officially multilingual contexts? What experiences and practices are shared by these different contexts and which ones differ? What could or should we learn from experiences and practices that differ from our own? These are just some of the questions that we would like to see discussed during the conference.

Please send two abstracts to Denise Merkle (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.): the first (to be included in the program) should be from 250 to 300 words, and the second (to be included in the grant application) should be no more than 150 words. The deadline is 15 December 2010.

Date: 2011-06-29
Venue: University of East Anglia, Norwich UK
Event theme(s): The theme of this second conference is ‘Linguistic and Cultural Representations across Media’, understood broadly as relating to the cross-over of language, mediation activities and media in a multilingual framework. It is intended to encompass communication and information flows in a range of contexts (e.g. the press, television and computer games, cinema, the theatre, museums, and the world wide web or other information channels); and to explore a range of activities central to the sharing of information and knowledge across languages and cultures in a global context: news transfer,multimedia and screen translation (e.g. subtitling, dubbing, etc.), stage translation and adaptation, the provision of multilingual information (e.g. in museums, trade fairs, etc.).

Date: 17-19 May 2012
Venue: Advanced School of Modern Languages for Interopreters and Translators, University of Bologna at Forlì


Event theme(s): The Advanced School of Modern Languages for Interpreters and Translators (SSLMIT) and the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in Translation, Languages and Cultures (SITLeC) of the University of Bologna at Forlì present the First International Conference Logo - npit1 {2012} on Non-professional Interpreting and Translation. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for discussion in a relatively recent and often neglected field of language and cultural mediation.

Despite being a hugely spread and submerged practice, non-professional interpreting and translation has always been the poor relative of both interpreting and translation studies and, as such, neglected and under-researched by academia and condemned by professional categories. By bringing together researchers from various disciplines this conference aims to bring to the fore and provide a forum in which researchers and students will be able to share information, perspectives and experiences of non-professional interpreting and translation, and explore a plurality of theoretical, methodological, ethical and disciplinary approaches related to the study of this form of linguistic and cultural mediation.

The First International Conference on Non-Professional Interpreting and Translation (NPIT1) Organizing Committee invites proposals for presentations on any theoretical, empirical and methodological aspect of research related to the conference theme.

The official conference language will be English.
