Interested in Studying Translation?
Summer school bursary available for JETAAUK alum
City, University of London is holding its fourth literary translation summer school from June 26th to 30th, 2017.
Translate is organised in conjunction with the Translators Association of the Society of Authors, offering the opportunity for budding translators to translate texts across literary genres from Japanese into English.
Participants will work with leading professional translators to translate a piece of fiction on a continuous basis in the mornings, with afternoons dedicated to translating short pieces in a variety of genres. Workshops will be led by eminent Japanese to English translator, Angus Turvill.
The course also offers opportunities for networking with publishers, City staff and other participants, particularly at the university's lunchtime and evening events.
To allow for individual attention in classes, groups will be limited to a maximum of 15 students. Places will allocated on a first come, first served basis so those interested should book early to avoid disappointment.
Translate is making available at least one of its 10 bursaries of £100 each to a JETAAUK alum. The person should be fully literate in Japanese to JLPT level 2 or above, with native-level English skills. The successful applicant(s) will be chosen by the course co-directors.
