Meeting Description:

The Institutes and Departments for Translation and Interpreting, established
in Europe after World War II, are celebrating their fiftieth and sixtieth-year
jubilees and the new academic discipline of translation studies is already half
a century old. This is a good occasion and a good reason to take stock of the
development and the state of art of translation studies.

After the successful 10-year long tradition of the 'International Innsbruck
Lectures on Translation Studies' and the International Summer Schools
'SummerTrans', held in Innsbruck, Saarbrücken and Vienna the 1st
TRANSLATA International Conference aims to have a new impact on
fundamental translation and interpreting research whilst offering a forum for
broad exchange between researchers, teachers and practitioners. On the
basis of recent and new research results as well as lively discussion between
established researchers and newcomers to the discipline, the conference
hopes to provide new insights into the different kinds of translation and
interpreting activities, at the same time gaining ground on the way to
scientifically-based quality standards in translation and interpreting.
