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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital 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.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
