New MLA Guidelines on Evaluating Translations

By Susan Harris

The Modern Language Association has posted new guidelines for evaluating translations as scholarship for tenure review.  Building on previous publications by ALTA and PEN, and drawing on the report of the academic working group at the Salzburg Global Seminar 461, the document offers guidelines for translators, committees, and reviewers, and notes the importance of considering translations in the context of purpose and audience.  Congratulations to co-authors Catherine Porter and Michael Henry Heim on this significant advancement in the recognition of translation in the academy.
