Project

The project is aimed at developing and launching digital tools for comparative thesaurus analysis of Russian translations of Shakespeare on the Internet (open access). For the first time ever, translations of Shakespeare’s plays, poems and sonnets in Russian will be available in a visualized environment where one can compare translators’ thesauri with those found in the English originals and with each other. The developed tools may be applied in research, teaching and translation practices. The target audience comprises scholars, translators, teachers, postgraduates, students and all those interested in the history of Shakespearean translations in Russia, as well as the issues of textual scholarship and source studies.
