CIUTI-Forum 2014

Pooling Academic Excellence with Entrepreneurship for New Partnerships

Edited By Martin Forstner, Hannelore Lee-Jahnke and Mingjiong Chai

The proceedings of the CIUTI FORUM 2014 outline in five chapters the different perspectives of academic excellence, pooled with entrepreneurship for new partnerships, focusing thus on an additional sense of innovation, fresh ideas and clever solutions in T&I training at universities. Therefore new projects of cooperation between universities and the market and international institutions are being presented, having always as a conditio sine qua non excellence and quality in training, paired with responsibility towards the students. This CIUTI FORUM did try to advise the major stakeholders once more, to use their own expertise to help to identify new needs, demands and challenges in their environment, and clearly showed how important it is in our academic training to look out of the box into the research of other disciplines in order to improve our didactical methods.
This volume contains contributions in English, French, German and Italian.

Interpreting in a World of Change



Last year I spoke at this Forum about the challenges to our profession brought about by change, about growth on language translation and interpretation markets, the new virtual ways of holding meetings with interpretation and the gradual merging in some cases, but certainly the increased cooperation and exchange between different branches of interpretation. I also spoke about the need to teach very special and different skill sets for each area of work in courts, public service and conference interpreting. I mentioned the problem of lack of recognition of the profession and the mass of non-professionals beginning to flood markets. I touched on changing client needs – one stop shopping and the increasing number of intermediaries proposing interpreting services.
