The MT4AW is a unique kind of event. During the workshop, you will take part in a writing bootcamp, in which you will post-edit one of your own academic texts originally written in your L1 (first language). <b>Therefore, you will be required to submit an academic text written in your first language (L1) prior to the workshop.</b>
The text excerpts should be an academic paper of approximately 750 words in length and should ideally be an extended abstract or a ‘Discussion section’ of an academic paper.
We (the Workshop organisers) will machine translate the text into English for you in advance. At the workshop you will be asked to self-post-edit the English version of that text.
<b>N.B. You must bring your own laptop to the Workshop. There will be no computers available at the Workshop venue. Your laptop must have a text editor installed that allows for tracking of changes (edits).</b>
