GSIT Career Speaker Series - The Art and Science of Diplomatic Translation

Description:
Diplomatic translators regularly experience the thrill of translating timely documents for the nations top decision makers. Nevertheless, diplomatic translation as a genre is little understood. How does one prepare to be a diplomatic translator? What special terminology should they master? What role do they play in the making of treaties and at international conferences? How do they use technology in their work? In an interactive and entertaining presentation, the Chief of the State Departments Translating Division answers these questions and offers insights into the fascinating world of diplomatic translation. Joseph P. Mazza joined the State Departments Office of Language Services (LS) in 1989 as a translator of Romance languages (Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese) into English. Since early 2006, he has been Chief of LSs Translating Division, with responsibility for most State Department translations. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 28, 2013
