The Salford Languages Research Group has particular expertise in the applied use of European languages in academic, professional and cultural contexts, and it also possesses expertise within Arabic translation and interpreting. Its members have participated in the National Centre of Languages Steering Group to review the National Standards in Translation; obtained external research funding from the AHRC; and possess specialized professional experience in environments ranging from the Jordan News Agency to European Works Councils. The Research Group members have been invited to give presentations at a range of institutions including the Université Rennes 2, The University of Stirling, and the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, London. Members of the group specialize in – and have published extensively in – interdisciplinary, real-world research areas focusing on language and contemporary society.
The Research Group welcomes proposals for collaborative research projects and initiatives from professional bodies and academic institutions. It is not currently accepting new PhD students.
