Seventh Portsmouth Translation Conference
'Translation As Negotiation'
Saturday 10 November 2007
As translators and interpreters we engage in a range of negotiatory activities.
We negotiate the frontiers and interfaces between languages and cultures; we
negotiate translation issues and problems; we negotiate rates, deadlines and
briefs with clients. We also engage with the range of expectations and demands
made of translators in our diverse cultures and working environments.
The organisers of the seventh Portsmouth Translation Conference invite
contributions from translation and interpreting professionals, scholars and
students on any topic relating to this year's theme.
We welcome a broad range of approaches to translation, including presentations
with an empirical, critical, analytic, pedagogical, technological or
professional focus. Enquiries and abstracts to carol.osullivanport.ac.uk.
Abstract deadline: 30 June 2007.

receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
