Encouraged by the success of the first “Interpreting the Future” conference which took place in Berlin in September 2009 with around 1,600 people from over 40 countries attending, Germany’s Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (BDÜ) is planning a further three-day international conference for September 2012 on the subject of
Translators and Interpreters:
Experts for International Communication in Specialised Fields
This event will turn the spotlight on translating and interpreting as expert professions and examine the challenges to be overcome in different specialisations.
Presentations and discussions will be simultaneously interpreted into German, English and French. At seminars and workshops, language professionals will be able to study various specialisations, bring their knowledge up to date or find out more about a specialisation they may be considering.
At the accompanying trade exhibition, the participants will be able to acquaint themselves with the latest reference works, information management tools, translation memory systems and services for translators and interpreters.
In networking sessions and at the job exchange, interested language professionals will be able to introduce themselves to prestigious companies and institutions and make direct contact with potential clients and colleagues specialised in the same or complementary fields.
