  • Project status: ongoing

In March 2017, the Institute for Applied Linguistics, in cooperation with the Department for Human Resources of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano, began a study on the translation practices and procedures of the provincial administration. Using social research methods and with the collaboration of the administration’s employees, the Institute shall gather information on the translation procedures used in the provincial administration. By analysing the needs and requirements of employees who, among other duties, carry out translations, this study could further develop the administration’s awareness of its translation system, shed light on ways to improve efficiency and indirectly enhance the quality of external communication.

The project consists of an exploratory study for the first seven months and a deeper study over the following three years as part of a PhD study.
