Translation on and over the Web

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding a workshop on Translation on and over the Web: Disentangling its conceptual uncertainties and ethical questions on 12 November 2021.

This event is designed to stimulate discussion among top researchers in this field with the aim of exploring conceptual ambiguities surrounding online collaborative translation and its ethical dimensions. We hope to find answers to the following questions: What is the most appropriate meta-concept for these relatively new online translation practices? How can we conceptualise the diverse types of translation underlying the various candidates for top-level concept? What are the ethical implications of these online translation phenomena?

To explore these questions, we are delighted to welcome the following speakers (in alphabetical order): Renée Desjardins, Miguel Á. Jiménez-Crespo, Henry Jones, David Orrego-Carmona, Luis Pérez-González, Attila Piróth, Regina Rogl, Leandra Sitte, Xiaochun Zhang and Cornelia Zwischenberger.

The workshop will take place online via Zoom. Anyone wishing to participate will receive the link to join the event after registering. For questions concerning registration, please contact our team at transcultcom.ztw@univie.ac.at.
