In translation education, developments in the professional group are closely monitored. However, it is virtually impossible to incorporate all educational developments.
● Are the translation programmes still sufficiently up-to-date?
● Is it still useful to train ‘generalists’? And to what extent can curricula be specialised?
● Which computer programs should they able to work with in their work as an interpreter/translator?
● How much room should be reserved for machine translation? And can we expect translators in training to be able to train an MT system after graduation?
● Is it sufficient to teach that technology only during the appropriate courses?
● Are teachers sufficiently educated to provide technological training?
The panellists for this session are:
● Joop Bindels (Translation Academy, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences)
● Fedde van Santen (ITV School of Interpreters and Translators)
● Lettie Dorst (Leiden University)
● Henky de Vries (Institute of Legal Interpreters and Translators SIGV)
The discussion is moderated by Gys-Walt van Egdom (Utrecht University)
