SWET Short Session (via Zoom) Translation Workshop

Moderated by Richard Medhurst
Date: December 9, 2020 (Wed.)
Time: 8:30 p.m. JST (40 minutes)
Eight people have already registered for this event; registration is closed.
SWET will hold a 40-minute Zoom session to discuss Japanese-to-English translation of a text. While staying close to the Japanese content, participants should imagine they are writing for readers who will only see their version and will judge it as an English text. This will set things up for a lively discussion on approaches to translation.
Those accepted for the workshop will be sent a short extract (around 500 characters) from a dialogue about the quality of online information to prepare in advance. 
Only those accepted will be contacted. To ensure the limited places are taken by active participants, please sign up only if you intend to do the translation. If you sign up, but are unexpectedly unable to attend, please contact us (SWET), so we can offer your place to someone else.
