Every year on 30th September, translators all around the world gather to celebrate the profession and show solidarity with their colleagues. This year, the French union of translators (SFT – Syndicat française des traducteurs) has organised a “traduel” – a translation duel – in which two English to French translators will battle it out, each translating the same text. The showdown will be followed by casual drinks, and a chance for Lyon’s professional translators to let their hair down. SFT members and non-members alike are welcome to attend.
The traduel kicks off at 6 pm on Friday, 30 September 2016, amphitheatre 004 at Université Jean Moulin, Lyon III.
