Linguistic Field(s): Translation 

Call Deadline: 30-Mar-2014 

Meeting Description:

‘Community translation’ or ‘public service translation’ refers to translation of different types of texts intended to facilitate communication between public services and people who do not have a good command of mainstream language(s). These texts may be produced by national or local authorities, non-governmental organisations, ethnic community organisations or leaders, neighbourhood associations, or any other social agent. They may include information leaflets, brochures, local newspapers, radio programs and websites among other genres and formats. The common denominator is that they are texts that need to be translated into minority languages in order to ensure communication with all citizens and residents and empower minority language speakers by giving them access to information and enabling them to participate in society.

Plenary Speakers:

Prof. Dorothy Kelly (Granada University, Spain)
Adjunct A/Prof. Uldis Ozolins (University of Western Sydney, Australia)
Dr. Harold Lesch (Stellenbosch University, South Africa)
