PREPARING THE NEXT GENERATION TO ENTER THE LANGUAGE INDUSTRY

EUATC network member Hermes Traducciones, whose managing director is Juan José Arevalillo, has been supporting the eTransfer project. The scheme aims to modernise the translation programmes by improving skills of translation students being prepared for the language industry market principally through developing and providing ICT-based innovative teaching material and assessment tools to teachers.

The project is being lead by Centre for Modern Languages, Budapest University of Technology and Economics with collaboration of the Centre for Translation Studies at the University of Vienna. It is particularly reaching out to disadvantaged groups to foster their digital skills ahead of them entering the language industry marketplace.

Our photograph shows Juan José Arevalillo, who is also President of EUATC member Asociación Sectorial de Proveedores de Servicios de Traducción (ASPROSET), presenting the translation e-modules and eCost elements of the project to the students of the Audio-visual Translation & Technology Master at Complutense University of Madrid. The university is piloting the e-modules and will use them for teaching specialised translators.
