CETRA is an initiative of the research unit Translation Studies, which is a part of the KU Leuven Arts Faculty (Belgium). However, our team members come from various departments, faculties and universities, spread over different countries and even continents. What binds us together, is our will to stimulate the international scholarly debate on translation.
