The core aim of this project is to produce a comprehensive "tool kit" making it easer for HE institutions within the EU to introduce Intercultural Communication into their postgraduate programmes in Translation. To this end, the project will produce -

  • a complete stand-alone module in Intercultural Communication
  • the necessary materials to allow the teaching of Intercultural Communication as a cross-curricular theme running right through translation programmes
  • a summary report presenting the project's findings on what constitutes good practice in the teaching of Intercultural Communication to translators


  • Keynote speaker: Kaisa Koskinen, Professor of Translation Studies, University of Eastern Finland
  • Project presentation
  • Practical workshops on integrating intercultural competence into the translation curriculum.
