PD opportunity: Translation workshop in South Australia


As translators we continually make choices at grammatical, terminological and stylistic level in the course of our assignments. However, many times these choices are made in an automatic manner, without considering the theories that back up the choices we make. In this dynamic workshop, we will explore several translation theories such as equivalence, skopos, domestication and foreignisation, in order to acquire a deeper understanding regarding the choices we make. At the end of the workshop, the participants will have the opportunity to complete a practical task where they┬┤ll have to apply the reviewed theories.
