Meeting Description:

The Project Hermēneus, with the emblematic Hermēneus Journal, has facilitated the dissemination of work in many subareas of Translation and Interpreting Studies for over 15 years. For this reason, the Project Hermēneus wishes to sponsor a series of conferences that will encourage contact among researchers in the subareas of translation studies.

The first conference will be centered on the use of corpus as a linguistic resource applied to the studies of translation and interpreting. The I Hermēneus Conference: Corpus-Based Translation and Interpreting Studies will be held next March 26-27, 2014, at the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting (Soria, Spain).
