)-- KantanMT announced it will become a sponsor of the ARTIS Conference on the 15-16 June 2015. The training event due to be held in University College London aims to advance collaboration and networking in translation research in Translation and Interpreting Studies.
The theme of the conference focuses on collaboration and networking in research methodology, and how it can be used to enhance research into different types of translation. Conference keynote speakers include; Dr Hye-Kyung Lee, King's College London, Dr Maeve Olohan,University of Manchester and Dr Esperança Bielsa, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.
Three themed panel sessions will consider a diverse range of relevant translation topics, and the second day of the event will include a session on archive work at the British Library and poster sessions. The two days will also offer an excellent opportunity to network with delegates from other institutions.
“Much recent translation studies research relies on either informal or organised networking,” says conference organiser, Dr. Mark Shuttleworth, University College London. “This training event is dedicated to issues of networking, multidimensionality and collaboration in translation research.”
The conference is organised with the official backing of the Advancing Research in Translation & Interpreting Studies (ARTIS) organisation, and is supported by the UCL Joint Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies. KantanMT joins its developer partner XTM International in sponsoring the event.
