Event description
An update on CREAMT: a project on creativity and translational modality

About this Event

The CREAMT project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant and is led by Ana Guerberof-Arenas and Antonio Toral. The project uses a novel, interdisciplinary approach to assess how effective machine translation (MT) is in literary translation, by focusing on the creative aspect of literary texts and the reader's experience. The first phase analyses reproductions and creative shifts in three modalities: MT, human translation and MT post-editing, and two languages: Catalan and Dutch. The second phase measures the reader’s experience using narrative engagement and enjoyment scales borrowed from psychology, communication and literary studies.

Ana Guerberof-Arenas will be joining us today to give an update on this project. Ana is Senior Lecturer in Translation and Multimodal Technologies at the University of Surrey. She is also a Marie Skłodowska Curie Research Fellow at the University of Groningen for the CREAMT project. She worked for over 20 years in the translation/localization industry, and previously worked as an MSc Research Fellow at the ADAPT Centre in Dublin City University, and as a lecturer at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Ana's research is focused on creativity in translation; translation reception and reading experience with different translation modalities; MT usability; MT post-editing productivity, quality and experience; pre-editing and post-editing; reading comprehension of MT output; and translator training.
