Could Google translate Shakespeare?

From Tuesday 5th December 2017 18:30 to Tuesday 5th December 2017 19:30

Translation technology has made very rapid advances in recent years, and we now expect our devices to provide us with serviceable translations at the touch of a screen. Literary texts are still viewed as an exception to this trend, but is it only a matter of time before we can expect Google to come up with a decent translation of Shakespeare?

This lecture, by Prof Duncan Large from the UEA School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing and the British Centre for Literary Translation, celebrates all that is human about literary translation.

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy this free public lecture, and there will be a chance to meet the speaker at a drinks reception after the talk.
