UTIC-2014. Mind the Gap
The translation industry feels there is a gap between what we need and what the European translator training produces. Whose responsibility is it to train translators to meet the needs of the industry? What incentive is there for an LSP or a university to start investing more? Are there factors regulating the current situation that are beyond our control? If universities don’t teach such skills, where will the students go to get the training? Whichever way we answer these questions, our steps need to be planned together because our current arrangements leave the academic institutions and LSPs to train far too much in isolation.
