Proceedings of a Conference held at the University of North London.


The University of North London's timely conference on Specialised Translation raised several important questions: 1. To what extent is the ex-technical specialised and indeed the non-literary translator in general responsible for securing the factual and the moral truth of her translation, as opposed to the (old-fashioned?) view that she is only responsible for ensuring the accuracy of her translation vis-à-vis the original? 2. To what extent must the translator be an expert in his particular text topic? 3. Should the non-literary translator be trained as a generalist or as an expert? [Source: BITRA]
