On October 19th and 20th, 2017, the SHIFT group met in Venice, hosted by VEASYT, to discuss project progress and future steps, with a special focus on the final outputs and events of the project: the teaching materials, the Summer School to be held in Forlì in June 2018 and the final event to be held in Guildford in July 2018.
On October 19th, 2017, SHIFT partner VEASYT will host the second SHIFT Multiplier Event in Venice, Italy.
During the event, the results of a market survey carried out within the project to explore the market and use of remote interpreting will be presented. Furthermore, guest speakers will talk about their interpreting service needs as users and about smart working and communication technology. Have a look at the programme above!
SAVE THE DATE!
The next SHIFT event will be held in Venice on October 19th, 2017, hosted by VEASYT.
Join us to learn more on how remote interpreting is being used and is likely to be used and perceived by interpreters and users (public and private institutions) on the market.
More details coming soon, stay tuned!
Mariachiara Russo, María Jesús González and Nicoletta Spinolo from the Department of Interpreting and Translation of the University of Bologna presented the SHIFT project and a sample of its intermediate results at the 30th AISPI (Associazione Ispanisti Italiani) conference, held in Turin from June 14th to 17th, 2017, with a presentation titled: Shaping the interpreters of the future and of today: el proyecto SHIFT.
The SHIFT project needs your precious help!
One of the project goals is carrying out a market survey on remote interpreting, in order to understand how much, how, when remote interpreting is used and who uses it. The final aggregate results will feed into project outputs and will be presented at our next event in Venice, Italy, in October (more info coming soon). The survey is anonymous and takes about 15 minutes.
There are two surveys, one for interpreters and one for users (and potential users) of remote interpreting.
The fourth SHIFT transnational meeting was held in Seville on January 31/February 1, 2017, and hosted by Pablo de Olavide University.
Before the meeting, SHIFT partners presented the project to students at Pablo de Olavide, and a very productive and interesting question/answer session developed after the presentation.
