Alliance PRO School of Specialist Translators

Dear colleagues!

We welcome you to another TranslAcademy free webinar on October 26 at 15.00 CEST (UTC+2). Traditionally we aim to discover translators’ and interpreters’ world’s best training practices. Our next guest is not an academic school. We will talk with the initiator of the school, which for many years has been filling up the gaps in the academic training of specialized translators. Our speaker is Evgeniy Bartov, a founder of Alliance PRO School of Specialist Translators.

During the webinar we’ll discuss specialisation and tips for any translator, regardless of their chosen field. Solutions to common problems will be explored, finishing with a list of suggested activities for self-development. The webinar mission is to get the answers to the questions:

WHY? Platform mission and goals. Trainee profile.

WHO? Staff peculiarities. Mentoring vs. Coaching: suitable balance.

WHOM? The assessment of trainees. WHAT? Insight into what it takes to become an expert specialized translator

HOW? Approaches. The Nuts and Bolts of Becoming a Specialized Translator. Focus on delivering the right quality to the right target.

And most important: WHAT is missing in the academic translation schools training to produce really trained translators and interpreters.

The webinar will include presentation by the speaker as well as an opportunity for questions and discussion. Traditionally we provide simultaneous translation in En <–>Ru pair to make our conversation easier.
