Translation as Communication across Languages and Cultures

Lecture | April 7 | 3-5 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, B-4 (Classroom side)

 Juliane House, Hellenic American University

 Berkeley Language Center

In this lecture I first suggest ways of building bridges between linguistic and cultural approaches to translation. Second I present my own theory of translation as re-contextualization and a “Third Space” phenomenon followed by a number of illustrations and examples, as well as reflections on the impact of global English on translation. Finally, I discuss some implications for translator education.
