Translation Seminar

On 17 July 1997, the Society arranged a private, exploratory, seminar on translation for invited members. Sir Rowland Whitehead, Bt, President of the Institute of Translators and Interpreters, was host. Round the table were Professor Morna Hooker, Lady Margaret's Professor at Cambridge. and New Testament translator for the New English Bible; Dr Michael Weitzman of the Department of Hebrew, University College London; Professor Lawrence Venuti of Temple University, Philadelphia, USA. the leading authority on translation theory; Josephine Bacon and David Carmona from the Institute of Translating and Interpreting, both heavily involved in those day to day activities; and myself.

We had a long and fruitful discussion of biblical and modern problems. all strongly related to Tyndale. The morning was privately tape-recorded: we intend that much for the work of the Society will come out of the experience.
