Karen Stokes FCIL CL, Chair of Council

Threlford Lecture – presented by Professor Joanna Drugan, University of East Anglia
Crime and Translation 
Crime is increasingly transnational and multilingual. 70% of the estimated 3,600 Organised Crime Groups in the EU in 2013 had multinational membership and communicated across at least two languages (Europol 2013). Police therefore increasingly rely on linguists to investigate serious crimes such as human trafficking.

In this talk, Professor Drugan will give an overview of new research about the critical role played by linguists in this effort. What are their experiences of interpreting and translation? How do they help the police understand, prevent and prosecute such crimes? And what professional and ethical challenges do they face in doing so?

Joanna Drugan is Professor of Translation at the University of East Anglia. Her research interests focus on translation quality, ethics and technologies.
