I've been teaching translation and interpreting (German-English) at the University of Limerick for many years. My freelance translation work has been primarily in the area of academic texts (lectures, essays, presentations) and documentation. I'm hoping to find out much more from professional translators and their employers what today's universities can best do to prepare students for a future career in translation.
