Translation as a means of international communication
- Hi all!
Lingva Prismo (http://www.lingvo.info/?lingvo=en) is a multilingual
website for and about languages. Each month we discuss different
current linguistic issues in our forum "Topic of the Month"
(http://www.lingvo.info/forumo/?lingvo=en) and we were wondering if
anyone would be interested in contributing to our debate.
Our "Topic of the Month" for November:
International organisations rely on the services of
translators/interpreters to provide full communication to all
parties. The EU aims to provide documentation of all proceedings, in
the 20 official EU languages which means a total of 190 language
combinations are possible. However, the European Commission has an
80% deficit in the number of translators from particular new member
Lingva Prismo discusses the topic of translators and interpreters, as
one means of international communication.
Therefore our November topic is:
Could the use of translators/interpreters be a realistic SOLE
solution for international communication?
We hope to hear from you in our forum!
