Following the international conference Tradition and Innovation in Translation Studies Research XI: Perspectives in Translation and Interpreting, we would like to invite all conference participants and attendees, as well as any other translation and interpreting studies researchers to submit for publication in BRIDGE their original, previously unpublished papers reflecting the topics presented during the conference.

The recent period has been marked with many changes, both positive and negative, that have significantly impacted every aspect of life, including the way interlingual and intercultural communication is happening. As language professionals and researchers reflect on these crucial moments of change, they bring about new perspectives, insights and inspiration. In this way, each sub-discipline of translation studies – literary and non-literary translation, simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, machine translation, audiovisual translation, localization, specialised translation and terminology processing, history and didactics of translation and interpreting – is both the consumer and provider of resources, information and new data for research, creating space for further progress and advancement of knowledge in the field.

The practice of translation and interpreting must be able to respond to transforming environments, adjust and evolve constantly. It is important to perceive both the challenges and opportunities as reflected in recent publications by Bernardini et al. (2020), Schaeffer et al. (2020) or Moratto and Li (2022). Responding well to the change can move the boundaries of translation studies (Gambier and Kaspere, 2021).

The aim of this special issue is to provide an opportunity for TS researchers to present their findings, insights, as well as new and innovative approaches to academic research which may advance the knowledge and enrich the discipline of TS.

We welcome full-length paper submissions reflecting the above-mentioned issues. All articles must be written in English and should not exceed 7,000 words. We also welcome reviews of publications related to the main topic of this issue.

Deadline for submission: 1 November 2023

Your submission should be sent via the journal website after your registration at: https://www.bridge.ff.ukf.sk/
