Dear friends and colleagues
Please permit me to publicise an academic conference that we're holding at Hong Kong Baptist University on 15-17 December 2021.
The conference will be an ideal forum in which to discuss research methodologies, issues of collaborativity, theoretical frameworks that have proven valuable for the study of Wikipedia translation, the use of Wikipedia in the translation classroom and by translation professionals, and the nature of Wikipedia translation and how it differs not only from other more traditional types of translation but also from other newly emerging types. While the conference's main focus is interlingual translation within the online encyclopaedia, we are also interested in research into the multilingual Wikipedia that makes no explicit reference to translation issues.
The conference will be online, face-to-face or mixed mode, depending on prevailing circumstances. Please see the conference website at https://ctn.hkbu.edu.hk/wikiconf2021/
for full details and the Call for Papers.
I hope to see some of you there!
