talk by Chris Durban, Portsmouth, 18 November

For those of you within what is picturesquely referred to in Ireland as an ass's roar of Portsmouth, we are honoured to be welcoming Chris Durban to the University on Friday 18 November to speak on the topic of:
"Premium translation: getting your hands dirty" 
Chris Durban
Friday 18 November 2011
1-2 pm
Park Building Room 2.07

This talk focuses on the ways that translators can interact with clients to get the information they need to produce a really good translation.

Chris Durban is a freelance translator (French to English) based in Paris, where she specializes in publication-level texts for demanding clients—the shareholders, customers and partners of a range of French corporations and institutions. For years she wrote a client education column called “The Onionskin” that ran in the ITI Bulletin (UK) and the ATA Chronicle (US), and she is co-author of the Fire Ant & Worker Bee advice column in Translation Journal. In October she published an updated and revised compilation of FA&WB columns in book form: The Prosperous Translator.

This event is free and everyone is welcome.
