Advanced Translation Research Center


Advanced Translation Research Center

= ATRC =

The 'Advanced Translation Research Center' (ATRC) at Saarland University was founded in 1994 with the objective to promote research into general conceptual and methodological translation and interpreting problems beyond language-specific boundaries and to create an international platform for discussion and exchange for young researchers.

With this objective in mind, the ATRC organizes

* Annual international conferences - starting in 1995 with the 'Saarbrücker Symposien', from 1999 to 2001 with the support of the European Union as 'Euroconferences' in Saarbrücken und since 2002 as High Level Scientific Conferences sponsored by the EU in Prague, Aarhus und Saarbrücken (http://www.euroconferences.info)
* An annual international PhD School for the promotion and support of translation-specific dissertations (http://www.euroconferences.info)
* Workshops in 'Translatology' focussing on new challenges in T&I research (subtitling, written interpreting, hypertext & jig saw texts, eyetracking and sight translation & interpreting)
* The documentation of its research in its working papers, the Arbeitsberichte des Advanced Translation Research Center (ATRC), Röhrig Universitätsverlag.

Ever since it was created, the 'Advanced Translation Research Center' (ATRC) has developed an institutional framework for the exchange and discussion of a multitude of topics and positions in T&I research with international colleagues and young researchers from Belgium, China, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Greece, Great Britain, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Cameroon, Korea, Latin America, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, the Philippines, Poland, Spain, South Africa, Thailand, the Czech Republic and Turkey. Over the years, the ATRC Network provided stimulus and challenges to new thought and processes in the discipline.

The ATRC is sponsored by the European Union through a number of projects, by the Saarland Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, by the alumni association of Saarland University (Vereinigung der Freunde der Universität des Saarlandes), by the university itself, by the 'Stiftung zur Förderung des Nachwuchses in der Übersetzungs- und Dolmetschwissenschaft' and by a number of Saarland companies.
