Lost in Translation? A Russian Language Professional Development Workshop

Sat, March 28, 2015 | CLA 0.104, The University of Texas at Austin

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

In this one-day professionalization workshop, students of Russian language will be introduced to translation as a career path or as means of earning supplementary income by utilizing their language skills. Participants will gain a comprehensive overview of the field of translation careers, with focus on three major areas - translation of literary works (poetry, prose and memoir), oral interpreting in various contexts and non-literary translation in the digital age (legal documents, smartphone apps, video games and computer-assisted tools).

Workshop participants will attend roundtable discussions with highly-trained specialists from each area to gain experienced insight into the field and the first-hand knowledge gained during this workshop will grant important insight as students pursue graduate research in various fields, including Slavic and Eurasian Studies, Public Affairs, Government, Comparative Literature and Anthropology.

Breakfast and lunch are included in this all-day workshop. 6 hours of CPE credit available.

A nominal tiered fee is charged to cover materials, meals, and refreshments. Register now! http://links.utexas.edu/cbeftmo
