About the workshop

Translation is both possible and impossible. How so? We shall address the question: What happens to translation, or rather, how does the translator translate the untranslatable? In this workshop, a number of typical translation situations will be considered to demonstrate how workable solutions to some complex and challenging problems can be found or produced.

The workshop is a free event open to MACTI students, HDR students, students majoring in Chinese translation and interpreting and UQ staff. 


The workshop will be held at ViewPoint, Building 33. Click here to view the location on UQ maps.
