Congratulations for you avant-garde work in Translation and Interpreting research.

I checked your page on current research and was pleased to find it has a lot in common with my current research efforts as part of my doctoral studies. I am a conference interpreter and translator working out of Brasilia, Brazil and am currently exploring the cognitive links between translation and interpreting (theory, competences, performace requiremnents etc). I will read more of your publications and will make contat with you in the near future regarding possible guidance to my thesis... I hope to meet you soon!

Best of luck,

Paulo Liégio

Many congrats!!


Although only indirectly related to Miriam's award, a thought:

couldn't aiic approach organisations that give out translation awards and work with them towards having them (organisations, not the same awards!) also cover conference interpretation ?

The Union Latine, amongts others, comes to mind!

Anything that enhances the profession's profile must be good for all its practioners, other than very justly acknolewdging individual merit.
