Prof Nord traces functional approaches to translation and interpreting

Prof. Christiane Nord (pictured) of the Department of Afroasiatic Studies, Sign Language and Language Practice at the University of the Free State, recently delivered her inaugural lecture as Extraordinary Professor on the Main Campus on the topic: Functional translatology – past, present and future perspectives. Her focus was on tracing the development and spreading of functional approaches to translation and interpreting in order to find out where they were going, what present trends and research interests of young functionalists were and where more investigation was needed. For this purpose she looked at persons and topics, as well as their geographical distribution.
