Translation event on the evening of 20 May 2021 at 6 pm organized by the French Institute in India

There is a webinar on Translation & Interpretation Studies in France this evening at 6 pm India time organized by the French Institute in India – IFI.

“Translation is not a matter of words only: it is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture.”

As you know, the art of translation and interpretation mobilises not only language skills but also empathy, creativity and general knowledge about differences between cultures. For the past year our virtual Translator’s Factory for Indian translators, among other training programmes designed for the publishing industry, has received an enthusiastic response from the community.

France also offers options to study in France for Indian students and working professionals. Campus France India, a cooperation service of the Embassy of France in India dedicated to student mobility, is organizing a live event on Interpretation & Translation Studies in France.

Join us tonight to know more about the courses offered. You will also get an opportunity to interact with Ms Sujaya Ghormade who is currently doing her Master’s in Audiovisual translation in France, and to ask questions live to a representative from ESIT – École Supérieure d’Interprètes et de Traducteurs, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
