Translation Contest in cooperation with DIT and TradInfo

On the occasion of the 2017 Festival Sedicicorto, we invite Italian, foreign and Erasmus Master’s degree students of the Department of Interpretation and Translation to translate the main title and subtitles of a short film. Professional translators will be able to participate to the competition this year as well, with the opportunity to win a one-year subscription to TradInfo.

The language choice is free. The translation shall be motivated either in Italian or in English, expressing how and why you have made those particular decisions.
