Joint LRG/EU Revision Workshop

Mon 23 June 2014, 10.00 - 12.45, 13.45 - 16.30

We are indebted to the European Commission's Directorate-General for Translation for its help in organising this workshop, which will be led by Peter Workman, a senior translator and reviser working for the DGT's English Language Department in Luxembourg.

Two identical workshops – one in the morning, one in the afternoon – will enable participants to practise and discuss revision techniques. They will be identical in content and format and will focus on revising translations into EN of FR, DE, ES and IT source texts.

Participants will gain an insight into revision work and learn about EU revision guidelines and practice. The workshop will be of value to freelance as well as staff translators and revisers, and will also assist anyone called upon to carry out revision work on his/her own or other people's texts.

Tea, coffee, soft drinks and light refreshments will be served at the start of each workshop. If participants wish to network after the morning or before the afternoon session, there are many cafés and restaurants in the area around Smith Square. The workshops – sponsored by the generosity of the EU Commission and the ITI London Regional Group – are free.
