Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies (UCCTS), which is a biennial international conference series launched to provide a forum for exploring the creation and use of corpora in contrastive and translation studies, is related, but not confined to the following themes:
* Design and development of comparable and parallel corpora * Processing of multilingual corpora * Using corpora in translation studies and teaching * Using corpora in cross-linguistic contrast * Corpus-based comparative research of source native language, translated language and target native language * Corpus-based research at the interface between contrastive and translation studies * Bilingual terminology, lexicology and lexicography
