He anunciado el taller en el forum "Events and Announcements" pero también lo anuncio aquí.

Aunque nuestro taller sobre corpora trata de textos de salida en inglés, los principios, conceptos y herramientas que se utilizan en el taller también pueden ser aplicados a otros idiomas.

Corpus-driven translation and editing of specialist texts

Translators/editors often feel constrained by their lack of knowledge of fields of expertise, such as medicine, engineering, finance, etc. Yet there is increasing demand for specialist translators and editors—who invariably command higher rates. Although the WWW is a potential (and valuable) source of field knowledge, undisciplined/uninformed research can lead to register violations, patchy style, real error, or simply “translationese”.

An alternative approach is to collect “appropriate” knowledge and “mine” it in a way that is both meaningful and efficient for the busy translator. This approach is based on creating and analysing a corpus (or corpora)—texts selected to represent a specific target knowledge domain and analysed using tools that help resolve “doubts” and overcome “pitfalls”.

Our workshop will raise awareness of issues of relevance to specialist (potential specialist) translators/editors, describe the corpus-driven approach, and inform you about free or inexpensive tools that will ultimately enhance the quality of your work. You’ll get hands-on practice with tools in a computer lab, receive several specialist corpora to take home, and learn how to create your own.
