Cologne Conference on Specialised Translation
(October 21 and 22, 2010, Cologne University of Applied Sciences, Germany)
The growing relevance of specialised translation in the applied branches of translation studies, i.e. professional translation, translation quality assessment and translation teaching, has also brought about a more in-depth consideration of specialised translation in the theoretical/descriptive branches of the discipline. Though this has led to some new and valuable insights, specialised translation still remains a largely under-researched field. This two-day international conference focuses on new approaches to specialised translation covering, but not limited to, the following areas of interest:
- Theoretical and methodological approaches to specialised translation
- Contrastive and corpus-based studies related to specific aspects of specialised translation in the area of expert-to-expert communication from various domains (such as science and technology, medicine, law, economics, architecture, etc.)
- Linguistic aspects of specialised translation
- Extra-linguistic aspects of specialised translation
- Ideological aspects of specialised translation
- Didactics of specialised translation
