Translation in Transition 6

Prague, Czech Republic

22nd and 23rd September 2022

Call for participation

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.

Plenary speakers

  • Silvia Bernardini: Translation and where to find it: Corpus methods for 21st century translation research (abstract)
  • Gert De Sutter: Taking stock of corpus-based translation studies, and some suggestions for further improvement (abstract)

Conference programme

The programme will be published soon. In addition to the two keynotes, it will consist of a stimulating roundtable discussion and a presentation of more than fifty accepted papers. The conference will be held in hybrid form, which means that all the participants can choose between online and in-person participation.
