Dr Daniel Tomozeiu (University of Westminster): Intercultural Communication for Translators

The talk will focus on the understanding the what intercultural competence means for translators and how it can be conceptualized. The practical side will be developed using the materials produced under Promoting Intercultural Competence in Translators (PICT, www.pictllp.eu). The project identified three different dimensions (theoretical, textual and interpersonal) which all have to be considered by professional translators. A short contextualization of the competence model with references to other similar approaches will be included. Given the practical focus of this competences model, the talk will end with ideas on the operationalization of the PICT approach and how junior translators can develop this set of competences.

Dr Daniel Tomozeiu is a Senior Lecturer in Intercultural Communication at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, University of Westminster. He teaches intercultural and institutional communication on undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses. In the period 2011-2013 Daniel coordinated, together with two colleagues, the EU-funded Promoting Intercultural Competence in Translators project (www.pictllp.eu). His research interests relate to intercultural competence in translators, interpreters and communicators- including internalized and institutional culture, audience visualization techniques, social positioning and identity issues. His research focuses on current professional practice as well as pedagogical aspects.
