UTIC-2014. Partnership of business and academia: win-win solution

The presentation describes proposals of Vox Translatorum initiative on reshaping study programmes for university translation departments. The authors have gathered and systematized best practices from translation companies in Ukraine and Russia looking at how businesses interact with higher education institutions in order to bridge the gap between the workforce supply needs of the translation industry and the academic system’s capability to satisfy them. Statistical analysis results from three studies covering the industry main players underpin findings in this presentation. The takeaways of presentation are comprehensive solutions that can be readily used both by educational organizations and translation companies.
