WELCOME to MATA’s 4th International Translation and Interpretation Conference!
If you’re a new translator/interpreter, fresh out of university and still struggling to find your feet, here’s an opportunity to learn and network!
If you’re an experienced translator/interpreter, harnessing new technology to help your day-to-day tasks, come and share your knowledge!
If you’re an interpreter and wonder what impact the stress of hours-long interpretation exerts on your health, as well as how to remedy it, you should definitely tag along!
If you’re a researcher of the theoretical, (neuro)biological or technological implications of translation and interpretation, you’re indispensable!
If you’re a member of a T&I association and wish to explore what forms of alliances and collaborations the new associations can establish, it’s important that we meet!
The overarching topic of this year’s conference is “Novelties in the Translation and Interpreting Industry”. Technological advancements shape the work of today’s language professionals and help translators and interpreters find out more about their limits, abilities and possibilities, about the health implications of these professions and about possible new forms of business association.
These are only a few aspects that we could touch upon during conference discussions. This year we at MATA are hoping to create a blend of research and practice presentations that would enrich and benefit the work of both researchers and practitioners and will inspire attendees to delve deeper into new topics for discussion.
So, book your flights and start planning.
