The workshop seeks to understand the context in which African academics work, and support their writing skills. It brings together approximately 20 African Early Career Researchers, international scholars and internationally renowned journal editors in translation and interpreting studies (TIS).

This coordinated effort between Aston University (UK), the University of the Free State (South Africa), and the Association for Translation Studies in Africa and supported by the British Academy builds on existing networks to empower young African scholars to develop publications for international journals, prepare competitive funding bids, build international networks, and liaise with senior academics and editors in translation and interpreting studies (TIS).
