Institute of Translation and Interpreting
Virtual/Brighton, United Kingdom, | 05/31/2022 - 06/01/2022

What Is This Event About?

 

Throughout 2021 ITI offered online conferences and dialogues, while now in 2022 the institute is preparing for its first hybrid event.

 

Attendees are able to attend in person at the Grand Hotel in Brighton, as well as remotely for those unable to travel to England’s picturesque South Coast.

 

This is sure to be a busy and illuminating 2-day programme, with inspiring and thought-provoking presentations and seminars across four tracks, one of which is dedicated entirely to interpreting.

 

This event is a can’t-miss opportunity for translators and interpreters to meet and share ideas, learn, and network with other language services professionals.

 

What Can You Expect?

 

This conference’s theme will focus on how galvanized language and translations industries have become over the past few years, with fast-changing technological developments fusing with the latest linguistic theories.

 

This year ITI will focus on both rising to challenges and embracing change, in order to empower translation professionals to the greatest of their potential.

 

The programme for the conference includes special guests and keynote speakers from all sectors of the interpretation and translation industry, in both private and public sectors.
