Title: CIUTI-Forum 2009
Subtitle: Translating the Future: Beyond today's academic & professional challenges
Edited By: Martin Forstner
Hannelore Lee-Jahnke
Lidi Wang
Description:

The CIUTI FORUM 2009: Translating the Future, focused on translation in a
world in transition within the context of globalization. Recent political
developments seem to be leading to a world society that is polycentric and
multipolar. An international system will emerge that will be characterized
by a new inter-regionalisation through a large number of interregional
arrangements of various forms of economic integration projects all over the
world. Following the example of the European Union, they will evolve into
competing regional entities like ASEAN in Southeast Asia, NAFTA in North
America, or MERCOSUR in South America. Confronted with these new
geopolitical settings, the CIUTI FORUM 2009 focused on these regions which
will probably develop into strong economic powers, alongside the United
States and the European Union. Owing to this multi-lateralizing
inter-regionalism, the exchange of goods, products and services in industry
and finance will continue growing exponentially, a fact that correlates
with an extremely high demand for foreign language services of all kinds.
This increased need has resulted in new challenges and tasks, not only for
practicing professional translators and their professional organizations,
but also for translation education institutions. Contributions are made in
either French or English; special stress is put on the training and
intercultural communication with China, taking into account the economic
and political issues, on which experts focus from an international,
interdisciplinary and multifaceted perspective.
