Globalisation, digital transformation and socio-cultural influences are changing social structures. All these phenomena have a profound impact on how we approach language and culture, on linguistic diversity and therefore also on translation. Some see machine translation as a curse. For others, it is a dream come true: at long last being able to communicate with one another across language barriers. What types of translation are emerging from digital transformation? How do political and social changes affect language? We will shed light on these topics through the exhibition “TransLate - from Babylon to DeepL. The Europe of Languages” and in a discussion with European experts from various disciplines at a digital conference on 4 November 2020.
