As a key component of global socio-economic development, tourism plays an important role. As a matter of fact, the last decades were extremely positive to tourism, in which travellers from all over the world demanded new destinations and travel opportunities. As a result, tourist offer became extremely rich and diverse. In fact, tourism nowadays is very different from the European 18th Century’s Grand Tour, which was understood as an educational and initiatory journey. Since the end of the 20th century, and particularly since the beginning of the 21st century, new types of tourism have emerged to complement the traditional tourism offerings, including luxury tourism, adventure tourism, wine tourism, olive oil tourism, gastronomic tourism, and health and beauty tourism, among others. This segment of tourism reflects the dynamism of the sector and encourages its seasonal adjustment in order to attract a broader range of tourists overall.

Paratranslating tourism


This third panel set up for the 3rd edition of TRADITUR is entirely dedicated to paratextuality in the professional practice of tourist translation and interpreting.


Thanks to the notion of paratranslation, the translator-interpreter is increasingly aware of the fact that everything that is edited in the margins of the text in tourist translation, as well as everything that occurs outside the verbal aspect of tourist translation, are paratextual practices that nourish and sustain the liminal experience of the threshold in the professional practice of translation and interpreting in the tourism sector.


Paratranslating tourism from the notion of paratranslation ultimately means being able to read, analyze, interpret, and transfer the ubiquitous paratextuality in tourist translation and interpreting. For example, in order to translate tourist spaces, the tourist interpreter-guide and, above all, the guide-lecturer, uses iconic, verbal, verbo-iconic, sound, and musical paratextual materials that, sooner or later, will appear either on paper (books, brochures, leaflets, etc.), on screen (websites and social media) or materialized in any other way (billboards, signposts, stickers, souvenirs) in the tourist space.


We will accept both online and onsite communications in order to facilitate meetings and exchanges between researchers and lecturers from around the world.


Additionally, this third edition of TRADITUR includes a series of workshops. These practical workshops will focus on tourism translation and discourse, or on the professional tourism and tourism translation market. In order to be considered for participation, submissions should consist of 45 minutes of content and be sent to gisella.policastro@uco.es and francisco.luque@uco.es for evaluation, indicating the type of participation. There is no difference in the workshop fee and registration fee.
