OMNIGLOT SEMINARS: TRANSLATION & TECHNOLOGY
A Seminar/Workshop with Gregory Crane, Michael Kellogg & Laura Healy
Thursday, April 7, 5:00pm
Today's translators no longer have to rely on the largest bilingual dictionary they can find. Computers and the Internet provide faster and more extensive access to old and new reference tools: from dictionaries and thesauruses to blogs and forums. Michael Kellogg, founder of WordReference.com, and Gregory Crane, editor in chief of The Perseus Project at Tufts University, will be joined by translator Laura Healy (translator of Roberto Bolano’s The Romantic Dogs) in a discussion of the practical uses of these technologies during the process of translation, focusing on key resources, useful software and time-saving shortcuts. The seminar will culminate with an interactive project with the audience.
Co-sponsored by the Woodberry Poetry Room, Harvard Review and Zoland Poetry.
Woodberry Poetry Room, Lamont Library, Room 330
Free and open to the public.
