SWET Talk Shop via Zoom:  Accessing the Professionals’ Toolboxes

A Conversation with Rebekah Harmon and Lynne E. Riggs

Date: Saturday, February 26, 2022

Translator and editor, formerly for institutions under MEXT and METI and now freelance, Rebekah Harmon joins veteran translator and editor Lynne E. Riggs to talk about ways the professional know-how of editors and J-to-E translators can be accessed and better shared (e.g., via style guides, such as the upcoming National Institutes for Cultural Heritage (NICH) style manual and the JTA FY2021 Writing and Style Manual); creating “analogous” rather than “accurate” translations; helping clients with design and layout challenges, and more. The second hour features Q&A and discussion with participants.
