CFP: 3rd IATIS Regional Translation Workshop on Translator and Interpreter Training

Call for papers for the Third IATIS Regional Translation Workshop

Faculty of Philosophy, University of Novi Sad, Serbia (25-26 September 2014)

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

The main focus of this two day conference is translator and interpreter academic education and professional training. There are several areas which 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.
We invite proposals for 20-minute papers, 30 or 60-minute practical workshops or poster presentations on 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
