About Us

The Centre for Translation and Textual Studies (CTTS) is a University-Designated Research Centre of Dublin City University, Ireland. It was established in 2000 to pursue research in translation and textual studies, applied languages, and related areas.

Interdisciplinarity and collaboration at the heart of the CTTS. We work with other research groups and initiatives within DCU and across universities, e.g. CNGL – Centre for Global Intelligent Content. We also have a track record in research collaboration with industry partners. These fruitful collaborative ventures have been hallmarks of the Centre’s work.
