Event description

Description

This event is a hands-on workshop to discuss the difficulties of translating both from Spanish to English and English to Spanish. In the morning session, we will work in small groups of 4 or 5, each only in one direction (either into-English or into-Spanish). In the afternoon, after a buffet lunch (included), we will mix up the groups to look at some tricky terms. The texts will be from a variety of subject fields. Finally, we will end with a translation slam, so please volunteer if you would like to take part!

As translators and reviewers, we can benefit greatly by getting feedback on our work and discussing how we take translation decisions. Our mentoring programme is testament to this. Equally, as can be seen on our forum, we often come across the same tricky terms and each of us has to find our own way to navigate the language barrier. So, whether you work into-English or into-Spanish, whether you’re new to translation or have many years of experience, join us for a day of translation talk.

All texts will be provided on the day and you do not need to prepare anything in advance. However, if you wish you may bring a small sample of your translations or a larger portfolio to showcase your work. A table will be made available.

The price of the ticket includes lunch and tea or coffee in the morning and afternoon.
