Warwick Translates Summer School – 8-12 July 2020
Are you a practising professional or a newcomer to the art of translation?
Develop your translation skills under the guidance of top professionals.
Aimed at practising translators at any stage of their career and language enthusiasts who want to explore the world of literary translation, Warwick Translates offers the opportunity to work with leading professional translators to translate texts across the literary genres into English.
Places in each workshop are limited to allow for individual attention and registration will close once this limit is reached. Attendees can choose to work in one language or to split their time between two languages.
Lunchtime events include panels led by Warwick Translates directors and a competition announcement by Comma Press. Evening events include a welcome reception and a keynote lecture by renowned poet and translator George Szirtes. There will be an optional excursion to Stratford to discuss theatre translation with Daniel Hahn.
