November 2020 Member Meeting
  Inclusive Language: How Does It Fit Into Translation?
Laurence H. Bogoslaw, Ph.D. 
US government agencies carefully craft documents in English to avoid any connotations of disrespect or discrimination based on ethnicity, age, ability, sexual orientation, etc. When these agencies hire translators, they expect us to convey the same tone of respect in the requested target languages. This talk will focus on two subjects of nondiscriminatory (inclusive) language – gender and disability – using a few examples. Then we will look at a larger issue: What strategies are available to translators to convey respect in our target languages? And if those strategies look different, how do we explain those differences to clients and other stakeholders?
