Topics for the Translation Summer School in 2015:

- issues surrounding literary translation (the state of literary translation in Russia; issues of training translators working with fiction literature);

- current issues around the professional training of translators (problems of level-based training of specialist translators; questions regarding teaching methods etc.);

- the legal aspects of translation (to include the preparation of a draft document on the creation of an institute of certified translators in Russia);

- the use of new information technologies in the translation process.

The Translation Summer School is being held as an integral part of the “Year of Literature”.

The programme will be updated as suggestions from speakers are received.
