Organiser: The Centre for Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies at Stirling (CTIISS), University of Stirling

Place: Conference Room at Stirling Court hotel

The Centre for Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies at Stirling (CTIISS) will be holding a two-day Translation and Literature Workshops as part of CTIISS Opening event on 26-27th January 2015. The workshop will be combining two complementary events: Burn’s Night Dinner and CTIISS Opening. The awareness of cultural and linguistic difference in specific field of translation has gained particular importance today, especially in the recent debate on “cracking the language barriers” and the wider business communities. Day One is International Translation and Literature Workshops, which includes keynote speeches and a series of panel discussions. It aims to gather scholars in the fields of Translation Studies and Cross-Cultural Studies to present their research results and exchange ideas on current issues in these rapidly developing fields. The goal is to create a synergy among established and novice researchers by sharing the participants’ current research results, opening up new research horizons, and possibly setting up collaboration in the field of Translation Studies, Cross-Cultural Studies, especially with Russian, Denmark, China and Spain. It aims to investigate how the act of translation functions in each respective medium, and how translation will be presented as an act of communication bridging and connecting different media and different cultures and professions.

Day Two is Translation Professional Training Workshops on Translating Business Film by Prof. Jean-Pierre Mailhac. This is an opportunity to acquire translation and project management skills which will enable you to make the most of this fast-growing market and enhance your profile as a professional translator.

Participation in the workshop is free of charge and open to any delegates. Complimentary refreshments and lunch will be provided.
