Buddhist Translation Studies (BTS) Program at the University of Vienna funded by the Khyentse Foundation
The Khyentse Foundation has awarded funding to the Institute of South Asian, Tibetan and Buddhist Studies (ISTB) at the University of Vienna in order to develop a training program for translators of Buddhist literature. This project will contribute to the creation of a culture of professional translation at the institute through supplementing the funding of visiting Khenpos and lecturers, organizing workshops, providing student support opportunities, and more. The program will utilize academic methods from various disciplines in order to train professional translators.
Updated information regarding the activities of the BTS program will be regularly posted on the ISTB website.
