Rovira i Virgili University, Tarragona, Spain

A training and research seminar in conjunction with the Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The practice of translation has been changing in recent years due to the development of new technologies. The aim of the seminar is to discuss ethical aspects of the use in translation of advanced technologies, which  have altered the time and space reference frame for both clients and  translators. By means of theoretical reflexions and practical exercises,  students will be exposed to issues involving international relations, cultural stereotypes and the client-translator relationship.

Lenita Rimoli Esteves is a professor of English Translation in the Department of Modern Languages at Universidade de Sao Paulo, USP, Brazil. She is also a professional translator, having worked in many areas, mainly for publishing houses. Her main research interests at the moment are Translation and Ethics. She teaches translation theory and practice at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
