The Art of Translation

During this half-day workshop in Utrecht, you will find out more about the art of translation. You will see examples of Christy’s translation projects. To her, translation is a form of art. Especially when she works for her art & culture clients. Translators paint with words.

What kind of decisions do you make to create a persuasive and reader-friendly text? 

Whether you already translate like a copywriter, or whether you are a legal or technical translator – you may well enjoy working on the examples of creative translations in this interactive workshop together with your colleagues. 

Let’s paint with words on Saturday 8 October!   


The programme runs from 10:00 to 13:00, including a tea/coffee break, with plenty of time for networking, catching up with colleagues, and making new connections.
