As a literary translator and researcher in the field of literary translation and technologies, I'm here to ask for your help with a survey I am conducting at the moment!
The survey is part of a research project titled ‘Literary translators’ perceptions of their roles and attitudes towards technology in contemporary society’, which is being conducted by me as part of my PhD under the auspices of the Centre for Translation and Interpreting Studies in Scotland (CTISS), Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK.
The purpose of the study is to develop a deeper understanding of the human and technological factors at play in the field of literary translation by giving literary translators the opportunity to share their personal narratives of (1) their role in contemporary society and (2) their attitudes towards technologies.
The questionnaire will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete and will be open until 31st October 2018. It can be found at the following link:
I would love for all literary translators among you to take part in the academic discussion around literary translators' roles in society and attitudes towards technologies by participating in this study.
If you require any further information on the questionnaire or the overall research project, feel free to contact me!
