    Default Survey: Literary Translators’ perceptions of their roles and attitudes towards techno

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Paola Ruffo, I'm a subtitler, translator and translation researcher, and wanted to ask for your help with a research project I'm working on at the moment, I hope that's fine

    I am a PhD candidate at the Centre for Translation and Interpreting Studies in Scotland (CTISS), Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK. I am currently conducting a survey aimed at literary translators.
    The survey is part of a research project titled ‘Literary translators’ perceptions of their roles and attitudes towards technology in contemporary society’, which is being conducted by me as part of my PhD.

    The purpose of the study is to develop a deeper understanding of the human and technological factors at play in the field of literary translation by giving literary translators the opportunity to share their personal narratives of (1) their role in contemporary society and (2) their attitudes towards technologies.

    The questionnaire will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete and will be open until 31st October 2018. It can be found at the following link:

    https://hw.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/liter...es-and-attit-3

    I would love for all literary translators among you to take part in the academic discussion around literary translators' roles in society and attitudes towards technologies by participating in this study.

    If you require any further information on the questionnaire or the overall research project, feel free to contact me!

    Thank you

    Hi Paola! I'd love to help but I'm a certified translator, not a literary one

    Good luck with your research! Do share your conclusions (if possible) once it's done! I find the topic quite interesting!
