Event Webcast: International Translation Day Colloquium, Brownsville

The University of Texas at Brownsville will celebrate its First International Translation Day Colloquium on Monday, September 30 from 4:30-7:30 p.m. (US Central Time). The event will be webcast live at this address.

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 Li��n-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 texts in Translation Studies: Eugene Nida's Toward a Science of Translating and The Theory and Practice of Translation.
