Transliteracy en Francais #translitteratie #translitteraties #tranlitteratie


20121108_170751Last week in Paris I learned there are several French Twitter hashtags for transliteracy including #translitteratie #translitteraties and #tranlitteratie (I've skipped the accents, apologies) but the one which seemed to win out was #translitteratie which was heavily used by @AnneCordier a Lecturer in Information Sciences and Communication at the University of Rouen, who provided an excellent running commentary to the proceedings.

It was a great opportunity to learn about French approaches to transliteracy and my first time wearing headphones for simultaneous translation, which was produced from a portable translation unit parked at the back of the room. See the picture. Ingenious!

The presentations are all available here, in a wonderful mishmash of french and english.  http://www.stef.ens-cachan.fr/manifs/translit/colloque_translit_det.html
