The International Research School for Media Translation and Digital Culture fosters an open and wide-ranging take on media translation and digital culture, and the significance of both for and beyond translation studies. It encourages cross-fertilization between these disciplinary sub-fields and addresses the new theoretical and methodological tools that translation scholars need in order to understand the strategic and catalyzing role played by translation in the changing ecology of networked digital media.

This school is aimed at an international audience and will primarily address the needs of doctoral and early career researchers in translation and interpreting studies, as well as more experienced academics who are new to the discipline or interested in engaging with recent developments in the field.

To be delivered by the British Centre for Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich – 24 to 30 July 2016.


The theme of the XXI FIT Congress is Disruption and Diversification.

The emphasis of the FIT Congress 2017 will be on issues relating to disruption and diversification in all the fields of translation and interpreting.  The 2017 Congress will highlight the impacts of technology, globalisation, policy and economic change on the delivery of language services, with specific streams for indigenous and sign languages, interpreting in conflict zones, community interpreting and translation, and literary translation.  Presenting at the FIT Congress 2017 offers a valuable opportunity to meet members of the Translation and Interpreting professionals, academics, service providers and other stakeholders.

The ITI Conference is the biggest event in the UK translation and interpreting calendar. Held every two years, it attracts attendees from all over the world. In 2015, the ITI Conference welcomed over 300 delegates from over 20 countries to Newcastle-upon-Tyne and was a resounding success.

By popular demand, in 2017, the ITI Conference makes a return to Cardiff, on 19 & 20 May. There will also be a day of preconference workshops and masterclasses on Thursday 18 May. This makes Cardiff the first city outside of London to play host to the ITI Conference twice.

The American Translation & Interpreting Studies Association invites you to attend their seventh biennial conference, “ATISA VII: Where
Theory and Practice Meet.” The conference will be held on the campus of New York University in the heart of New York City.

“Collaborative Translation: from Antiquity to the Internet”
5-7 June 2014, Paris
Organized by the University of Paris 8 – Vincennes-Saint-Denis
Conference venues: The Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the University of Paris 8

This IATIS Regional Workshop will explore the diversity of translation practices which challenge the myth that the singular translator could or indeed should assume the place of an “original” author. We hope to encourage scholars to think about the collaborative dimension to all forms of translation, past and present, and to interrogate how creative practices are negotiated within institutional contexts. We welcome contributions which present collaborative translation histories and practices from beyond Europe, thereby contextualizing Western thinking about translation.

Join Kilgray & ProZ.com on May 30th to learn firsthand about memoQ 2013, which will be released after the virtual conference, attend panel discussions, ask the support team, learn from memoQ's development team, and chat with language service providers and fellow translators.
