MuTra discusses modern translation tasks as they cut across the traditional interlingual,
intralingual and intersemiotic categories and typically integrate modern technologies in coping with
such challenges as cross-cultural knowledge management in LSP communication, transferring
linear to non-linear texts ('hypertext'), switching from spoken to written modes (subtitling) as well
as considering the accessibility to information for audiences such as the blind and hearing
impaired communities (audiodescription, written interpretation.
MuTra addresses the multiple (multilingual, multimedia, multimodal and polysemiotic)
dimensions of modern translation tasks and investigates the impact of modern technologies
on the form, content, structure and modes of translation and interpretation. It integrates
research in LSP communication & cross-cultural knowledge management, media translation
and interpretation (including subtitling for handicapped) as well as technical translation. Its
objective is (1) to identify and explore the interplay of these multiple dimensions relative to
the standards of coherence, information structuring, isotopic continuity and translation
methodologies and (2) to train young researchers in the respective research methods and
enhance their intercultural communication abilities and experience.
Papers are invited on the Theory & Methodology of Multidimensional Translation in its
cultural, media, and interpreting aspects.
