Virtual Middlebury

Open to the Public

Dmitry Buzadzhi, Visiting Professor, Translation & Interpretation, MIIS
“Translation and Interpreting as Acting”

While purely linguistic approaches to understanding, practicing, and teaching translation and interpretation are certainly necessary, sometimes we have to look at our profession from a different perspective to understand what underlies a translator’s or interpreter’s strategies. This session will explore similarities between Stanislavski’s concept of acting and techniques used by interpreters and translators, as well as teachers who train them. The speaker will provide specific examples from his experiences as a translator/interpreter and professor and will suggest solutions which could help both practitioners and educators achieve their goals more effectively.
