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"
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!
