Meeting Description:

New Horizons in Translation and Interpreting Studies

Málaga, Spain
29-31 January 2015

The 7th International Conference of the Iberian Association of Translation and Interpreting Studies (AIETI) will be held in Malaga, a Phoenician city which has been a melting pot of languages and cultures for millennia. Since its foundation, the city has witnessed the history of the Mediterranean, which bathes the city’s shores and provides cool and refreshing air. It is a cosmopolitan, welcoming city and offers a wide range of cultural, gastronomic and leisure activities. Malaga is an example of architecture and innovation yet still remains true to its traditional roots, making it an ideal venue for celebrating the 7th International Conference of AIETI and exploring new horizons in Translation and Interpreting Studies.

At this year's conference we intend to provide a forum for discussion which reflects the most current and updated research, in order to promote and disseminate the constant changes and developments in the field of Translation and Interpreting, both at academic and professional level. At this conference the real needs of translators and interpreters, the latest innovations, and the most comprehensive studies on translation and interpreting of the 21st century will be discussed from the points of view of different fields of expertise.

Prestigious and internationally acclaimed academic lecturers such as Ruslan Mitkov (University of Wolverhampton), Daniel Gile (University of París 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle), Guy Aston (University of Bologna) and África Vidal Claramonte (University of Salamanca) will be present at AIETI7. Four workshops will also be available on post editing, proof reading, quality control and machine translation.
