Berkeley Translation Initiative

The Berkeley Translation Initiative brings together students, faculty, and researchers who are interested in the study, practice, and theory of translation. In our modern globalized and technologically interconnected world, translation is at once ubiquitous and invisible. The initiative therefore seeks to visibilize translation as at once a practice and an object of intellectual inquiry at UC Berkeley. It brings together scholars from across fields and disciplines to further understanding of translation in its broadest possible sense as the movement of written, spoken, or multimodal texts between different languages, varieties, codes, media, and cultures.
