Translating the World of Geek and Pop Culture


DESCRIPTION:

Cosplaying? Fandom? Canon? Shipping? Battle Royale? ... What? With the widespread adoption of words from geek culture, pop culture and the videogame industry, translators and interpreters are bound to eventually stumble upon some of this jargon. Don't wanna flop? Then come learn a bit more about some of the hottest words millennials and Gen Ziers use all the time.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    With this webinar we will pursue the following objectives:

    • To understand the basics of videogame culture
    • To learn about the biggest geek symbols in the world right now
    • To understand what to be careful with when translating for a geek
