TRICKLET Conference 2022



Welcome to the TRICKLET conference 2022, “Model building in empirical translation studies”!
The conference will take place in Aachen, Germany, 19-20 May 2022.

In recent years, a wide range of empirical studies have yielded insight on various aspects of translations, using increasingly sophisticated corpus-linguistic or psycholinguistic methods. It is time to take stock of this empirical insight and review the contribution of these studies to an emerging model or theory of translation that is grounded in empirical evidence.

This conference offers a space for the discussion of the compatibility and convergence of these contributions, and whether the multiple dimensions that they cover can be meaningfully integrated into one consistent model of translation. Specifically, the conference will also encourage insight into the role of language theory in an empirical translation model.

The conference is scheduled as an in-person event. We will continually monitor the pandemic situation, and if necessary, we will change to an online event in line with public health regulations.
