New date: 11 March 2021

Based on the success of previous editions, this year again the TEW will be organised in close cooperation with Saint Jerome Days taking place at Comenius University on 15 and 16 October 2020 (Saint Jerome Days are organised by the Slovak Association of Interpreters and Translators and bring speakers from the translation industry to discuss burning issues of translators' reality with graduate students and freelancers). 
Diverse stakeholders in the audience will have an opportunity to learn and reflect on EU terminology and localisation of EU texts in the public domain, e.g. where and how it is created (‘Brussels’ or Slovakia?) and how media work with it in the rapid media environment. Last year’s turnout at EU election in Slovakia (twice as high as at the previous elections but still the lowest across EU), serves as a proof of media’s important role in building up the positive image of EU among Slovaks. The target audience of this one-day-event will be: journalists, media experts, freelancers, EU translators, academia, terminologists, linguists, translation students

Topics that will be covered: 

  • Translating and localising EC press release;
  • Translating EU news for Slovak media (speaker from the News Agency of the Slovak Republic);
  • EU communication with the media (Peter Stano, Lead Spokesperson for foreign affairs and security policy in VP/High Representative Josep Borell Fontellesteam);
  • Terminology presentation on cybersecurity (JUDr. René Baran, National Security Authority;
  • Reflection of EU terminology in media –what are the pitfalls?; 
  • Language used in/by the media (round table discussions in small groups)
  • Practical workshop on localisation of a press release
