eCPD Webinars is offering a webinar on Getting the Most out of Research on Translation & Interpreting on 13th March 2014.
Traditionally, translators and interpreters have been very wary of academic research. Either they have felt that the ideas and theories generated in the ivory tower were of no use to practitioners or they have been concerned about the risks of allowing researchers to watch them work.
This webinar will dispel the myth that research in translation or interpreting is of no use to professionals by showing how both the results of research and the practices involved in doing research well can help professional translators and interpreters work more effectively and deliver projects that better meet their clients’ expectations.
Jonathan Downie has been a freelance conference interpreter and translator since 2008. In 2010, he started a part-time PhD in Interpreting at Heriot-Watt University. He blogs and writes regularly on the usefulness of research and research skills to professional translators and interpreters.
