The cycle of seminars which will be held by Eleonora Federici and Cinzia Spinzi on the language of tourism and translation practices at the University of Palermo aims to offer an overview of the relationship between Tourism
and Translation Studies, as well to investigate the difficulties translators may face when dealing with culture-specific terms. A corpus of texts belonging to different genres is explored within the context of intercultural communication and mediation by also highlighting the role of metaphors in the creation of tourist text types and their transfer within translation settings.
