Le Séminaire sur la traduction chinois-français célèbre son dixième anniversaire à Beijing | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

Le 19 décembre au matin, le Séminaire sur la traduction du chinois vers le français de l'Association des traducteurs chinois (ATC) a célébré son dixième anniversaire à Beijing. Cette cérémonie était également l'occasion d'inaugurer la 21e édition du séminaire organisé sous l'égide de la Télévision centrale de Chine (CCTV).

M. Huang Youyi, vice-président et secrétaire général de l'ATC, a fait l'éloge des efforts de tous les membres présents au séminaire sur la traduction du chinois vers le français, en les remerciant pour leur contribution sociale. Il s'est également félicité de la participation des experts étrangers au séminaire, ce qui participe au perfectionnement de la traduction des expressions chinoises.

M. Huang a dévoilé que l'examen du niveau I du CATTI (China Accreditation Test for Translators and Interpreters) débuterait en 2013.

A cette occasion, M. Huang a décerné le titre de Membre d'honneur du Séminaire sur la traduction du chinois vers le français à quatorze spécialistes du français, à savoir Hou Guixin, Xie Xiehe, Jiang Deshan, Chen Boxiang, Tang Jialong, Lan Baolin, Zhao Wenli, Wang Wenrong, Ren Youliang, Guo Anding, Yang Jun, Qiu Juliang, Hao Baolu et Jia Yanjing, pour leur contribution au développement du séminaire.

Après la cérémonie présidée par M. Gong Jieshi, le secrétaire général du séminaire et directeur du département de français des Éditions en langues étrangères, les traductions françaises de plus de deux cents expressions et mots chinois ont fait l'objet de discussions chaleureuses. Ces expressions appartenaient à différents domaines parmi lesquels nous citerons le XVIIIe Congrès du Parti communiste chinois, la société, l'économie, les îles Diaoyu et les néologismes chinois.

Interpreter Training: Is This a Game-Changer?
Even in this world of constant connection and information overload, every once in a while there is a story that stands out from the rest. Being a trainer of conference interpreters, it’s clear that my eye is most likely to be caught by stories and events in my field. What I want to talk about today would appear to be something of a game-changer for interpreter training, or at least a firm step towards bringing training into the 21st century.

We all know that post-secondary education is moving swiftly toward embracing virtual learning environments (VLE). You don’t have to look far to find the trailblazers: headlines were made around the world recently when Harvard, MIT, and other top US schools unveiled edX, a common platform offering hundreds of their courses online for free. Oxford has since responded with a weblearning initiative of its own, and others are swiftly following in their footsteps.

Readers may also be aware that there are more and more opportunities springing up for learning and practicing interpreting online. Here are a few good examples: the University of the Witwatersrand occasionally offers intensive courses in interpreting techniques that are part online, part face-to-face. The FTSK’s Internationale Sommerschule offers weekly not-for-credit online interpreter training sessions. Then there are AIIC’s training webinars, which expose a broad audience to the views of eminent trainers. I also know of a handful of colleagues who regularly teach and meet with students via Skype or get together to practice their technique in Google Hangouts.

However, to my knowledge at least, there has to date been no degree-level interpreter training course delivered 100% online. This is all changing, with the launch of the Master of Conference Interpreting (MCI) at the Glendon School of Translation in Toronto, Canada.

Glendon’s MCI is a complete, two-year postgraduate qualification. It’s not the first of its kind in this respect – indeed, in many ways it is modelled on more classical training models such as the European Master’s in Conference Interpreting – but what makes it new and different is the fact that Year One of the program is delivered 100% online via Moodle (a popular VLE) and Adobe Connect (a webconferencing tool). Successful completion of the first year, which includes modules in healthcare, legal and conference interpreting, leads to a Graduate Diploma in General Interpreting and is intended to prepare students to obtain certification and enter the community interpreting markets in their countries.

Traductora y formadora de traductores, la autora de esta nota repasa el estado de la enseñanza de la traducción literaria en la Argentina, las opciones que tienen los estudiantes y las alternativas de entrada al mercado laboral.

POR JULIA BENSEÑOR

Estudiar para traductor: dónde y cómo

Etiquetado como:La Argentina un país de traductores
Si bien la traducción es uno de los oficios más antiguos, surge como carrera profesional apenas en los primeros años del siglo XX, por lo que podría decirse que es una carrera joven.

En la Argentina, quien quiera estudiar una carrera de traducción primero deberá discernir si prefiere hacer el traductorado público, lo que significa que se formará exclusivamente en el campo jurídico, o el traductorado orientado a otros campos del saber, como la literatura, la ciencia y la técnica. En función de esta decisión primaria, el futuro traductor profesional tiene ante sí diversas opciones, pero quisiera abocarme a la formación del traductor literario.

Los traductores literarios de la Argentina, al igual que en otros países, provienen de entornos de formación muy variados, como son las carreras de traducción, las licenciaturas en idiomas y las carreras de letras, e incluso de otros ámbitos menos formales.

En el terreno de la educación formal, la oferta de centros de enseñanza en la Argentina no es muy amplia en términos geográficos, ya que la mayoría se concentra en la ciudad de Buenos Aires –al igual que con tantas otras cuestiones de este país–, como tampoco lo es en términos de diversidad de idiomas, ya que la formación en inglés lleva claramente la delantera, seguida por la de algunos otros idiomas, como el alemán, el francés y el portugués, en cuanto a cantidad de centros y, claro está, de alumnos inscriptos.

Five-day workshop on teaching translation, interpretation ends

ISLAMABAD: A five-day workshop under the auspicious Department of Translation and Interpretation of the International Islamic University, Islamabad (IIUI) with the collaboration of Higher Education Commission (HEC) ended on Monday at IIUI. The concluding ceremony of the workshop was held in the seminar room of the central library of IIUI, which was presided over by renowned scholar Prof Jasim Taqi. Programme coordinator and Translation and Interpretation Department head Dr Inamul Haq Ghazi presented a brief report about the workshop and said that participants had learned so many new things from this workshop and they were now in better position to differentiate between the translation and interpretation. He thanked the HEC for the cooperation in holding such a purposeful workshop. Dr Nighat Shakoor and Nasir Mehmood expressed their view about the workshop on this occasion and appreciated this effort of the Faculty of Arabic. Dr Taqi said it was imperative for progress and development of any nation to translate information about new disciplines and technologies and adopt the mother languages for communication in this regard. He quoted the examples of Japan and Korea, the two countries that were ruined in the Second World War but they get new lives due to translations of different disciplines and technologies in their own languages. staff

Long-Term Vocabulary Expansion Possible Through Incidental Vocabulary Acquisition, announces Ultimate Vocabulary - Education News - redOrbit

Long-Term Vocabulary Expansion Possible Through Incidental Vocabulary Acquisition, announces Ultimate Vocabulary - Education News - redOrbit | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it
The Kent State University study has revealed that readers can expand their vocabulary through incidental vocabulary acquisition, announces Ultimate Vocabulary. Incidental vocabulary acquisition occurs when readers encounter unfamiliar words in their day to day reading.

New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 15, 2012

A study by Dr. Jocelyn Folk, associate professor at Kent State University, has shown that when skilled readers encounter new words within a text, they are able to come away with reasonable definitions for these words. This method of expanding vocabulary is more successful in the long term when compared to intentional vocabulary acquisition. This new study builds on the findings of past studies which had already shown a strong connection between a strong vocabulary and reading comprehension. Naturally, different individuals process new words differently.

“In order to ensure optimum comprehension, students and other learners should be taught how to use context to figure out new words,” says Dr. Folk. Principals and teachers should be aware that incidental vocabulary learning is just as important as direct instruction. Schools should begin paying more attention to this new method of expanding vocabulary. The study has also shown that the ability to infer word meaning from the context could also impact comprehension in other areas of the curriculum.

Writing Center offers online tutoring after hours

Online tutoring, provided by the FMU Writing Center (WC), gives FMU students a new way to access tutorials outside of normal hours.
Dr. Jennifer Kunka, director of the WC, implemented the program last semester for off-campus students, but has decided to offer online tutoring for the entire student body.
“It began because we wanted to provide Writing Center tutoring assistance to students who are not physically taking class on the campus,” Kunka said. “[Now] we have decided to expand it this semester to a wider audience. We’ve opened it up to the entire university and have started to get some interest in it from students who are signing up to make use of what we can offer.”
Justin McGee, one of four online WC consultants, said that Collaborate is an environment that provides almost the same experience as meeting face to face.
“It’s different because you lose that one-on-one interaction between the student and the tutor,” McGee said. “However, the program we use, Blackboard Collaborate, really makes the sessions as similar to normal tutoring sessions as possible.”
Tutorials take place through an online application called Blackboard Collaborate. Collaborate is part of the Blackboard website which many professors use to post assignments and quizzes for students. Collaborate provides specialized tools for online tutoring allowing students to share documents and to interact with the tutors in various ways.
Students who are interested in using Blackboard Collaborate through the online tutoring program are required to have a microphone and speakers or headphones in order to talk to the tutors. A webcam is helpful, but optional for students. The tutors, however, will have a headset as well as a webcam so students can both see and hear them during the tutorial.
Although the tutoring sessions provide the same quality of tutoring found in the WC, some prior set-up is essential to make sure everything happens as it should.
