Translation Today: Technology, Trust and the Role of the Translator

As professionals, translators need to adapt and innovate to keep up with the ongoing technological developments in the translation services market, such as computer-aided translation services and machine translation tools. But the question is: to what extent should technology and human skills be trusted? 

The aim of the School is to embrace technological advances in translation and to make the most of them. Through practical activities and theoretical lectures, scholars and professionals in the field will shed new light on technology and the role of translators today.

Lectures and seminars are scheduled from 11th to 15th December 2023, offering 30 academic hours of tuition. All activities will be held in English.
