    Default Research project at university

    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

    Welcome Paola!!

    Before I take a look at the research you are working on, tell us a little more about you.

    Where are you from? What languages other than English do you know?

    My name is Eidji, I'm from Buenos Aires and though not a translator, I do try to give a hand to the lot.

    Nice to meet you!
