Meeting Description:

Following up on last year's success, the CBS CRITT centre is offering the second international PhD course in Translation Process Research (TPR) from August 13 to 16. The course will focus on theoretical aspects of translation process research, on experimental research design and methodology, on data visualization and human translation modeling, and on qualitative and quantitative data analysis. There will also be frequent opportunities to consider issues arising in connection with user interaction with language technological tools, particularly the process of postediting machine translation output.

The course components will be taught by leading researchers in the respective fields. The mornings will be devoted to lectures and discussion, while the afternoon sessions will include participant presentations, one-on-one consultation with the lecturers, and the group preparing, running and analyzing a demonstration experiment applying the methods taught in the morning sessions. The course will be taught in English.

Following the course, there will be an open workshop on Expertise in Translation and Post-editing - Research and Applications on August 17 and 18. Participants are encouraged to participate in the workshop and may contribute an abstract for presentation at the workshop.

The course is still open for registration to all Ph.D. students interested in translation process research.
