Approaches To Translating Sports Documents

Approaches To Translating Sports Documents

Translation is an essential process in almost every sporting encounter around the world. During the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, for example, how will the world understand the matches played and the images displayed, viewed on their television sets, mobile devices, tracked online or commented upon in the media? This workshop exposes participants to sports translation and writing techniques in Arabic and English and develops in them the skills required in professional sports translation and editing.

The workshop consists of:

  • Presentations,
  • Examples reflecting cases of sports translation,
  • Practice on the translation strategies adopted in sports translation,
  • A review of the translation techniques that ensure adequate sports translation outcomes.
