Meeting Description:

Translation and Journalism
Guest speaker: Roberto A. ValdeĆ³n, Universidad de Oviedo

A relatively new sub-domain in Translation Studies, journalistic translation has been gaining attention over the past fifteen years. Researchers have begun to examine the role, use, effects, and status of translation as it relates to information production in the era of market globalization.

Journalistic writing often incorporates translation, although journalists rarely recognize translation as a completely separate, specialized skill. And yet translation is everywhere. When it is understood as the tripartite activity described by Roman Jakobson (1959: 233), the potential areas of investigation encompass a wide range of intralingual, interlingual and intersemiotic phenomena.

Translation studies has developed the tools to study news selection and framing, cultural contextualization, representational strategies, and ideological manipulation, including the modes of message mediation that are at the heart of journalism. It is time to recognize that research on translation in journalism and journalism in translation has advanced and will continue to do so. Journalism is here understood to include all of its traditional genres and formats, as well as the current practices of news media in the era of multiplatform and fragmented news consumption.
