International Conference on Community Translation 2014
University of Western Sydney
11-13 September 2014
'Community translation' (also known as 'public service translation') refers to translation of different types of texts intended to facilitate communication between public services and people who do not have a good command of mainstream language(s). The common denominator is that they are texts that need to be translated into minority languages in order to ensure communication with all citizens and residents and empower minority language speakers by giving them access to information and enabling them to participate in society.
The First International Conference on Community Translation will provide a high profile forum for researchers, translation practitioners, government and non-government organisations to share views, experiences, research findings and policy developments.
