Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Meeting Description: NPIT2 provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers focusing on translation and interpreting in everyday settings.

Within the field of interpreting and translation studies, non-professional interpreting and translation has always been under appreciated, neglected and under-researched by academia. Nonetheless, it remains and will continue to be the most widespread form of translational action.

NPIT2 aims to provide a forum for researchers and students to share information, perspectives and experiences concerning non-professional interpreting and translation. Furthermore, this forum serves to expand the theoretical, methodological, ethical and disciplinary approaches related to this form of linguistic and cultural mediation.
