Launched in 2004 by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, the Translators’ Centre has become a key meeting point for translators and publishers. It offers a wide range of opportunities to:
- share information and experiences and develop contacts;
- take part in the interesting programme of meetings, seminars, workshops;
- obtain information on and register with the World Directory of Children’s Book Translators (http://www NULL.bolognachildrensbookfair NULL.com/en/centro_traduttori/world), the first world database of children’s book translators available on-line free of charge throughout the year;
- information and advice on the main topics of professional relevance, professional associations’ activities, translators’ residences and grant organisations, funding to translations for publishers.
Thanks to the collaboration with the Bologna University SSLMIT whose students will practice simultaneous translation during the Centre’s meetings and thanks to the Bologna Scuola Superiore per Mediatori Linguistici ‘Carlo Bo’, special attention will be paid to job training.
The Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2011 will take place from 28 to 31 March. The Translators’ Centre programme can be found here (http://www NULL.bookfair NULL.bolognafiere NULL.it/en/programma/programma_traduttori).
