Translation Theory & Practice
Saturday 27 October 2018 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm (AEDT)
What theory do practicing translators need to know?
This presentation will address the question of integrating theory in the practice of translation. It will present an overview of the main theoretical underpinnings of the practice of translation and will provide some testimonials of translators on how they rely upon and relate to theory. The presentation draws on my own experience as a translator and on academic debates on the role theory should play in translation processes.
Registration from 1:45 pm
PD Level - Beginner : 10 points : Logbook Section 1.4
