Is this for you?

Cultural translation, as put by Anthony Pym in Exploring Translation Theories, is a paradigm that concerns “general cultural processes rather than finite linguistic products” and “helps us think about a globalizing world in which ‘start’ and ‘target’ sides are neither stable nor entirely separate.” As every translation activity inextricably involves a certain degree of cultural transfer, this symposium centering on the theme of cultural translation hopes to provide a forum in which participants can exchange ideas on various topics pertinent to this very topical area of translation studies.
