Following several years of generous tutorship in the renowned CETRA program, the Nida Institute launched its own Nida School of Translation Studies in 2007. Designed to put into practice a transdisciplinary view of translation and to incorporate sacred text translation in the work of modern translation studies, the Nida School meets annually for two weeks in May/June, at its Misano Adriatico (Rimini), Italy campus. It provides post-doctoral scholars, and a limited number of advanced doctoral students with an intense program of lectures, workshops, readings, and tutorials. The School welcomes associates who have research and/or field experience in translation and interpreting of any kind, For the associates, the capstone experience is a presentation of their own research to the assembled faculty and other associates.
Each year, the Nida School enrolls an international cohort of scholars and researchers who are engaged in advanced studies. Some of these are translation consultants from Bible societies or from other recognized translation agencies; others are translation studies students and scholars.
