Translation theory – a mystery, a blessing, a curse?
What does it mean to practitioners?

Christian Schmidt and Marina Morgan

"Translation Theory? ... Spare us!" you may say.

The workshop aims to identify past translation theories and what some have termed a modern "revolution". It explores why this is of essential relevance to today's practitioners. We would like you to come away with a better and clearer understanding of the value offered by translation theories in making us more effective language professionals.
