The Nida School of Translation Studies (NSTS), an initiative of the Nida Institute and affiliate of the newly launched journal, translationconvenes each year a two-week seminar. NSTS brings together experts from translation studies, religious discourse translation, and other cognate disciplines to explore translation theory and research across a wide variety of professions and academic fields. Lectures, seminars, guided readings, participant-led discussions, and tutorials provide the pedagogical tools for NSTS. The NSTS is held annually as an advanced research seminar.
