AFO at Translation in Transition 2022

Sandra Halverson, our group leader, and Haidee Kotze run a roundtable during the conference Translation in Transition 2022 held in Prague on 22-23 September.  The discussion called for a common theoretical framework in Translation Studies, an issue that has been overlooked at the advantage of methodological sophistication. Five major translation scholars took part in the roundtable: Hanna Risku, Stella Neumann, Bogusława Whyatt, Gert De Sutter, and Oliver Czulo.

Jean Nitzke also delivered a paper entitled Decisions in post-editing projects: Using semi-structured interviews with stakeholders from the language industry to update a decision tree model for post-editing tasks. This interview study, conducted with Carmen Canfora and Silvia Hansen-Schirra, revealed to which extent postediting is used in translation projects. It also stressed what the deciding factors are for outlining these projects.
