FIT International Interpreters & Translators Conference Brisbane 2017 - Abstracts due 1st October 2016‏‏

Added Thu - 14/07/16

Exciting Announcement! 

On the 3rd – 5th August 2017 will be an international interpreters and translator’s conference in Brisbane.  This Federation of Interpreters and Translators (FIT) Conference, is unique in the way that ASLIA (Queensland) and AUSIT are working together to organise it and it will be the first time that Sign Language Interpreting will be included. There will be numerous streams within the conference, and one stream will be dedicated purely to Sign Language Interpreting.  

We need your assistance! A call for papers is open, and we need Sign Language Interpreting abstract submissions by the 1st October 2016.

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.
 

FIT invites all those interested – practitioners, academics, students, agencies, software makers and policy makers, accreditation bodies, and buyers of services -to submit your proposal in an English word document or a video in Auslan or International Sign Language.
