Here’s an opportunity to hone your pharma translation skills before enjoying the company of your colleagues and friends at the JAT Summer Party. With Tony Atkinson as speaker, JATPHARMA presents a two-hour, hands-on workshop in which the participants will draft, and collectively improve and revise translations of pharma texts focusing on the topics listed below. Example sentences will be made available before the event and intending participants will be encouraged to submit proposed translations in advance. Participants will then examine selected translations on the day, translate similar examples, and discuss how they could be improved.

2. Translating verbal constructions in Japanese into nominal constructions in English (JE)

3. 考えられる - Its forms, meanings, and possible translations (JE)
