Translators in Schools

Training translators to deliver workshops in schools

Translators in Schools is a professional development programme that aims to widen the pool of people with the skills to run creative translation workshops in schools. It aims also to create a bank of model workshops that can be used by translators and teachers to promote translation skills, meta-linguistic awareness and interest in studying foreign languages. Initially funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and European Commission, it was nominated for the 2014 Threlford Memorial Cup awarded by the Chartered Institute of Linguists.
