This year the conference focuses on the global aspect/s of translation and interpretation. With the growing changes in the nature of translation and language services jobs whether in terms of business models (more and more online, outsourced, freelance opportunities compared to permanent onsite jobs) and with the evolving role of technology and the internet, practitioners, businesses, and instructors are engaged in questions related to tapping such opportunities and addressing the challenges they could pose. Contributions are invited on the following themes from a Local (Wafaa: just to avoid the Egyptian voice), regional, or international perspective:

  • Translation and Interpretation in global contexts
  • Instructional and Practical aspects of Translation and Interpretation
  • How can talents gear up for the market?
  • How can businesses provide services globally?
  • How can businesses help potential translators match skills with market needs?
