Scottish Network: Translating Scottish heritage

21 August 2021 10am – 1pm BST ITI Networks online

Heritage sites contribute significantly to the circulation of cultural knowledge across linguistic and cultural borders. Translation and interpreting play an essential role to ensure international visitors can access and understand heritage sites, but heritage translation also brings its own set of challenges.

In the first part of the event, translator and doctoral researcher Pauline Côme (University of Strathclyde) will share insights from her current research project investigating French translations at Scottish heritage sights. After the break, three Scottish Network members, working with German, Portuguese and Japanese, respectively, will discuss their wide-ranging experience of translating and interpreting in heritage settings in a moderated panel discussion.

The online workshop on Saturday morning is complemented by excursions in small local groups on Saturday afternoon (Covid-related restrictions permitting) and a second online session on Thursday, 26 August 2021 for sharing excursion findings.
