Call Deadline: 14-Feb-2022

Meeting Description:

The conference is a continuation of the well-established Translation in Transition series that serves as a meeting point for scholars conducting research in translation based on an empirical methodological paradigm. With the previous conferences in mind, held in Copenhagen, Germersheim, Ghent, Barcelona and Kent (Ohio), the Prague edition wants to put special emphasis on three main directions: we would like to draw on the vast resources of the Czech National Corpus (including InterCorp, a large multilingual parallel corpus), and concentrate on the methodological interplay between translation studies and contrastive linguistics. At the same time, prominence will be given to machine translation, as Prague is one of its international centres.

Call for Papers:


We invite original submissions that deal with any of the conference topics. To encourage a fruitful exchange of ideas and experience among the researchers of various fields of specialization, preference will be given to interdisciplinary contributions that cover two or more of the conference topics.

The submissions are to be made in the form of anonymized extended abstracts that should be between 500 and 800 words long (excluding references). Apart from a clear outline of the aims and methods of the study, the abstracts should also provide (preliminary) results. The abstracts will be submitted through Easy Chair and reviewed by at least two members of the scientific committee.

Important Dates:

Submission of abstracts by 14 Feb 2022
Notification of acceptance by 30 Apr 2022
Registration from 1 May 2022
