Dear colleagues,

The Centre for English Corpus Linguistics of the University of Louvain is pleased to announce the launch of a new international corpus collection initiative. The project called MUST - Multilingual Student Translation - aims to collect a multilingual corpus of translations produced by intermediate and/or advanced foreign language learners and trainee translators.

Although translations from and into any language are welcome, we are particularly interested in collecting translations of the same texts by learners/trainee translators translating into and from their mother tongue (e.g. English texts translated into French by native speakers of English and the same texts translated into French by French-speaking EFL learners/trainee translators).

The main expected outputs of the project are: - A large student translation database searchable via a web-based interface - Standardized metadata for translated language - Standardized error taxonomy for translated language

If you are interested in taking part in this exciting new initiative, can we ask you to fill in the attached questionnaire and send it back to sylviane.granger at uclouvain.be<mailto:sylviane.granger at uclouvain.be> and/or marie-aude.lefer at uclouvain.be<mailto:marie-aude.lefer at uclouvain.be> by 15 April 2016?

A workshop will be organized in Louvain-la-Neuve in the autumn to fine-tune the objectives of the project in accordance with participants' needs and set priorities for the first stage of the project.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you require further clarification.

Best wishes,

Sylviane Granger & Marie-Aude Lefer Project leaders http://www.uclouvain.be/en-cecl.html
