Translation 101

Veteran translator Fred Uleman will present a “Translation 101” session for beginner and wannabe translators. This session is not for experienced translators. Rather, it is for people who are sometimes asked to “help out” with translation and people who would like to be translators. As such, it will cover what translation is, what it is intended to do, how to avoid some of the worst pitfalls, and more. There will also be ample time for discussion. Although the focus will be on Japanese-to-English translation, because that is what Fred does, people interested in working the other way are also welcome.
