Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) announces its 2010 meeting,
28-30 October 2010
Universitat Rovira i Virgili
Campus Catalunya, Tarragona, Spain
Deadline for submission of proposals: 30 April 2010
Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) is an independent, non-profit association that brings together people who give language support for international communication in English within the Mediterranean and southern European area. We invite researchers and practitioners of language support for international communication in English from the Mediterranean area and beyond to attend the conference and consider sharing their work in presentations or posters.
MET’s meetings explore the nature of written or spoken texts in professional disciplines that communicate knowledge internationally through English, and the processes through which language support providers (translators, editors, coaches and other advisors) assist with writing, preparing for publication, or oral presentation of knowledge or culture in English.
We welcome proposals on topics relevant to the 2010 conference theme as well as to the association’s objectives, especially regarding how to
* communicate knowledge that can contribute to improving the quality of language support services available in the Mediterranean
* stimulate research into the language support needs of academics, scientists, public institutions and private enterprises and stimulate research into promising practices that meet their needs well
* help users of language support services locate appropriate solutions to their needs and promote mutual understanding between suppliers and users of these services.
We invite proposals for oral presentations, training workshops, and posters.
