Fit-For-Market Translator and Interpreter Training in a Digital Age
Budapest, BME TFK, 28 - 29 September 2018
Welcome to eTransFair
To meet the market needs in the field of specialised translation, higher education training programmes have to prepare students for the working life. The aim of modernising the higher education programmes in the field of specialised translation will be met by improving transversal skills that prepare translation students for the language industry market and by providing ICT-based innovative teaching material and assessment tools to teachers. We pay special attention to inclusiveness and to disadvantaged groups when fostering digital skills.

IO1: MONITORED SET OF SKILLS FOR THE JOB PROFILE ‘SPECIALISED TRANSLATORS’
The major objective of Output 1, the first intellectual product of eTransFair, was to identify a set of skills – a sort of competence profile – for specialised translators, on the basis of the reviews of competence models already outlined for general translators; and recommend a set of teaching modules to be introduced at university curricula to meet the changing requirements of the translation market.
