Special issue of the inTRAlinea online magazine
The Italian inTRAlinea online magazine of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies in Translation, Languages and Culture at Bologna University dedicated its special issue on "Specialised Translation", published by Danio Maldussi and Eva Wiesmann, to the memory of Hans J. Vermeer. This issue includes an article in Italian on the influence of skopos theory in the area of specialised translation, especially in legal translation and localisation. An article in English also uses the concept "skopos adequate" as if it were now a standard tool for assessing translations.

First anniversary of Hans J. Vermeer's death on 4 February
On 4 February 2010, Hans J. Vermeer departed from us. Like so many of his friends, we spent the day quietly missing him. However, we remember his remarkable life with joy and we are grateful for the years we shared with him.
The Vermeer working library at FTSK
The German and Intercultural Studies Department at FTSK has reconstructed the Translation Studies library of Hans J. Vermeer. The library was a very generous gift from his family and contains books, journals, manuscripts and handwritten notes. This library is a record of decades of work by the well-known translation theorist. It is of great academic value and provides a precious source of information for students and researchers in Translation Studies.
