Translation Studies Summer School

If you are interested in getting into translation studies, you might want to attend the following program:

The HONG KONG TRANSLATION RESEARCH SUMMER SCHOOL – TRSS (HK) – is a new initiative based at the Centre for Translation, Hong Kong Baptist University. TRSS (HK) provides a parallel programme to the well-established UK-based Translation Research Summer School, and is organized in close collaboration with the three British institutions that run the UK programme – the Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies at the University of Manchester, the Centre for Intercultural Studies at University College London (UCL), and the Translation Studies Graduate Programme, at the University of Edinburgh. TRSS (HK) offers a two-week course in Hong Kong, providing intensive research training in translation and intercultural studies for prospective researchers in the field.

It is now open for application. For details of the Hong Kong Translation Research Summer School, please refer to the website http://www.researchschool.org/. For enquiries, please email ctn@hkbu.edu.hk.

The official deadline for applications for the Summer School in UK has passed.

Do you know of any programmes like the one you have mentioned, especially programmes that focus on practical, applied issues of how to translate? I am interested.

Thank you,

Well, there is the program at BCLT. See http://www.uea.ac.uk/bclt/summer+school
And there's the Nida program in Rimini, Italy. See http://www.nidainstitute.org/TheNidaSchool/NidaSchool2009.dsp
The former is more practical and the latter is more academic.
Best wishes,
