CALL FOR PAPERS SPRING 2016, FITISPOS INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL, VOLUME 3
A RETROSPECTIVE REVIEW ON PUBLIC SERVICE TRANSLATION & INTERPRETATION IN THE LAST DECADE. PROGRESS MADE AND CHALLENGES FOR THE FUTURE
FITISPOS- IJ, VOL 3, 2016
Coordinator: Raquel Lázaro Gutiérrez
The year 2016 will be the 10th Anniversary of the creation of the Red COMUNIC@ (National Observatory on Public Service Translation & Interpretation). At this point of inflexion, we would like to assess the changes that have taken place during the last decade in the field of provision of linguistic services in the public services. While it is true that we have witnessed some of the most important changes during this intense decade, we have also faced many challenges which rather than dishearten us have actually spurred us on, to continue striving for professionalization of Public Service Translation & Interpretation (PSTI).
The 2016 volume of FITISPos International Journal will be dedicated to reviewing and analysing the evolution of PSTI during the past decade. We would be delighted to receive your proposals for papers (preliminary version of the full paper) which should focus on any of the following issues:
-State of PSTI
-Professionalization and recognition of PSTI-Training challenges in PSTI
-Monitoring and quality systems in PSTI
