TranslAcademy is a place to go to for discovering world’s best translators’ training practices that we present in a form of interviews with different translation schools representatives. Our spotlight is focused on written translators’ and interpreters’ professional development through a synergy among schools and collaborations in the field of Translation Studies. We create an inclusive participation platform that facilitates sharing ideas, experiences and innovative approaches for effectively contributing to the modern agenda of the translation market. Translation trainers, prospective school students and practitioners in translation are welcome here. Life-long learning and curiosity about countries and people are two passions that threw us together. Hope to share them with you!
