Research on translation, interpreting and multilingual communication

Brussels Institute for Applied Linguistics



The BIAL research group is concerned with research into multilingual and intercultural transfer. This transfer encompasses the phenomena of circulation, transformation and reinterpretation of linguistic practices and discourses in and across geo-cultural areas and societal contexts. BIAL is interdisciplinary at its core and aligns itself with current developments in Translation Studies, Interpreting Studies, Terminology, Cultural Transfer, Intercultural Communication and Language and Society.
