The Department of Foreign Languages, Translation and Interpreting (DFLTI) is organizing an event entitled "Translation and Interpreting in Crisis Settings" on May 9th, 16:30 - 20:00.

In our interconnected and globalized world, a crisis –whether triggered by natural hazards or driven by humans– can erupt in one city, region, or country, and then easily spread to others or even become global as the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine have recently highlighted. At the same time, and partly due to the crises that erupt, numerous people are displaced or migrate, leading to increasingly multilingual and multicultural societies. Language, thus, plays a crucial role in both cross-boundary and local settings, and translators and interpreters are key to achieving optimal written, oral, and multimodal communication at different stages of a crisis and with different audiences.

This event focuses on the significance of translation and interpreting in crisis settings as well as on the impact that such settings may have on interpreters.

The event is free and open to all.
