The workshop held in Salamanca on April 24th, 2012 addressed existing approaches and current challenges regarding the key issue of domain specialization in the training of future translators.

The partners discussed the current state of domain specialization in existing programmes, exchanged their views and experience on the subject, presented interesting examples of good practice, and engaged in a very lively discussion about the risks and challenges that both translators and translator trainers will be facing in the interdisciplinary specialized domains of the 21st century.

Many thanks are due to all participants for the time and efforts devoted to the preliminary work that made it possible to have such a fruitful meeting and for their valuable contributions during the event, and excellent occasion for all to gain new insights to meet our common goal: to continue to improve and adapt our training to our profession’s constantly evolving needs.
