Translating Europe: Unlocking the Black Box of Translators’ Eyes and Mind

February 2, 2018

This event is part of a series of Translating Europe regional workshops being held all over Europe and funded by the Directorate-General for Translation of the European Commission. These workshops aim to bring together academics, students, practitioners and employers from the world of translation so that they can network, share knowledge and hone best practices.

This event will focus on how the latest empirical research can help us understand translators’ mind at work and its implication for evidence-based policy making for translators. It will also provide a workshop with hands-on demonstration on how professional translators can use some simple translation process research methods as reflective tools for professional development.

This event may be of interest for professional translators who are interested in continuous professional development and for translation researchers/students who are interested in the latest developments of (neuro-) cognitive translation process research, its methodologies and implications.
