Teaching Translation Today and Tomorrow: Breeding the next generation of translators

Date and time: 11:00-12:00, Sunday, 14 June, 2015
NOTE: This session has already been held

Room: Panorama East

Today: With over 30 years of expertise, the Maastricht School of Translation has developed a unique approach to teaching translation skills. The programme offers the students practical cases and authentic assignments from day 1. We will bring some examples to illustrate this, from both the educational perspective and the workplace.

Tomorrow: Challenges that have presented themselves over the past decade include the student’s decreasing entry levels, the skills gap between school and practice, the increasing demands of technical skills and management skills. What are our answers? To find out, attend this presentation, demonstration and workshop.
