ITI Russian-English translation workshop, Edinburgh, 10 September

Just seen on the Translatio mailing list, looks like a good day!
 The Institute of Translation and Interpreting's Russian Network is holding an all-day translation
workshop in Edinburgh, open to professional translators and translation students. This will be a hands-on translation workshop with 1.5 hour sessions on legal, financial and oil and gas translation, plus a fourth session on ‘getting the message across’ (how to deal with 'little local difficulties' that pop up in the most sober of texts: neologisms, ambiguities and issues in cultural transfer.). Dictionaries and texts in English and Russian will be provided. Participants will divide into language groups where they will discuss and produce draft translations of short texts from key areas, then report back to the whole group.
Discussions will be facilitated by experienced translators specialising in the area.

Morning: 10.00-13.15
Afternoon: 14.15-17.30

Venue: Scotland-Russia Institute, 9 South College Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AA

Students: GBP15.00
Members of the ITI's Russian Network: GBP25.00
Non-members of the ITI's Russian Network: GBP30.00
Registration and payment: To register (and for any queries), please contact Fiona Paterson (fiona at
