This conference taking place on February 19, 2016, at Aston University was organised by the Department of Languages and Translation Studies (LTS) , with the support of the Centre for Language Research at Aston (CLaRA), and brought together international scholars from varied disciplines to talk about a wide range of topics, including “Rethinking the Translation Continuum”, “Official multilingualism and translation in NGOs” and “Legal Translation and Multilingual Lawmaking in the EU”.
Are you interested in working as a translator or interpreter, but unsure how to start? This one-day event should answer questions on:
– the qualities and skills you need to work as a translator or interpreter
– how to get organised – and where to find help
– breaking through the ‘no experience = no work’ barrier pricing and financial aspects of being a translator or interpreter.
There will be a question-and-answer session and time for networking.
A free event arranged jointly by Aston University in Birmingham and ITI (Institute of Translation & Interpreting)
