London Met senior lecturer makes important contribution to recent publication in translation.
Dr Piero Toto has been named as a co-author on an article examining localisation teaching and best practices. Entitled Challenges and Constraints in Designing a Localisation Module for a Multilingual Cohort, the article has been published by Peter Lang in the volume Conducting Research in Translation Technologies.
Drawing on the authors’ experience of teaching the module Software and Website Localisation, which forms part of London Met’s MA Translation degree, the article forms part of a volume written by leading experts in the field, exploring some of the current communication and informational trends defining our contemporary world and impinging on the translation profession. The volume has been lauded by Peter Lang as a 'bold attempt at contextualising translation technologies and their applications’, and has been described as a must-read for budding translators and academics alike.
Dr Toto is a senior lecturer on the BA and MA Translation courses with the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities. A specialist in translation technology and training, Dr Toto has published extensively, which includes translations into Italian and articles on masculinity, queer studies and translator training.
