The Translation and Interpreting Institute (TII) at Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) has opened the registration for the 9th Annual International Translation Conference.
The two-day conference, slated for 27 -28 March, will witness participation from local and international speakers and scholars, and will pose as a platform for knowledge-sharing as well as effective exchange of ideas and research. Registration is possible through TII’s online portal, and will extend until the first day of the conference.
The annual conference, this year following the theme ‘Translation in the Digital Age: From Translation Tools to Shifting Paradigms’, will discuss and debate the latest translation and interpreting modes, tools and techniques transforming the landscape of translation theory and practice. Dr Amal Al Malki, founding dean of CHSS, said that the conference will shed light on how the advent of technology is transforming modern-day translation and interpreting practices.
Some panel members will discuss machine translation, translation for specific purposes, non-professional translation, translation for the web, as well as translation and manipulation. The workshops are expected to address issues that relate to translation technologies using the popular Trados platform as an example.
This year, the conference will host 37 speakers from more than 19 countries. The conference is expected to provide a unique networking opportunity to all participants, as it will be widely attended by scholars and academics from local and international organisations, working professionals within the translation and interpreting industries, as well as university officials.
