Beyond the Workshops
In addition to the workshop series Shadow Heroes also run bespoke enrichment sessions, which offer students of any age-group intensive training in translation techniques in a particular language. At the end of the workshop series, Shadow Heroes brings students from all the schools together for an event during which time staff and students alike are able to exchange experiences, get involved in translation-themed fun and feel part of a creative, linguistic community.
Our 2017 finale event was held at UCS and brought together students from UCS, City of London Girls and City Academy Hackney. The event involved prizes for various 'best' translations over the course of the series, a talk by a war journalist about working with translators in conflict zones, and a challenging translation game.
Shadow Heroes offers extension workshops tailor-made for the specifications of any school. These are designed for any age-group and language, to build or enhance translation skills in a specific language.
