TranslateSingapore 2016: Opening Lecture

  • Orchard Central 181 Orchard Road Singapore, 238896 Singapore (map)

"How Not To Get Lost In Translation: The translation and interpreting landscape in the digital age" is the opening lecture of the Select Centre's TranslateSingapore festival, now back for its second year. Featuring Dr Henry Liu, current President of the International Federation of Translators, and moderated by Tan Dan Feng, the lecture will focus on many important issues affecting the art of translation in the modern age.

Its main concern is this: technology has already begun to reshape the face of translation and interpreting (T&I) around the world. What is the global T&I landscape today? What are the implications of recent T&I developments for a knowledge economy like Singapore's? What do policy makers and language professionals need to know to prepare themselves for the next stage? Dr Henry Liu will share his views and observations on the state of translation in the Asia Pacific and the world today over the course of this lecture, which will then be followed by a networking mixer. Come meet fellow translators and interpreters and exchange notes!
