The European Commission is inviting representatives and practitioners involved in plain language to present at this event which will showcase ways in which plain language can support European democracy and transparency through clear language.
The main conference will try to answer:
- how plain language acts as a tool for democracy and outreach to the public;
- how we can make clear writing the default setting, and use it to reach a wider audience (drawing together good practices from across the EU);
- how can plain language help us communicate on complex topics like climate and energy.

The Third WordstoDeeds Conference – on the theme of Legal Translation and Risk – will soon be here!
There’s a truly stellar line-up – including Baroness Hale, former president of the UK’s Supreme Court, Baroness Tulkens, former Vice-President of the ECtHR, and a host of top practitioners, academics, and experts from over 40 countries in a diverse range of fields which, in addition to spanning comparative law and legal language, include risk theory, legal tech and more, as well as focusing on fair trials and human rights.
The golden thread running throughout the conference is that what we do entails risk – yet clients fail to see that. We hope that by the end of the conference attendees will feel more empowered than ever to help clients see the need for expert legal translation services.
28 to 29 January 2023 at Jesus College Cambridge, UK.

I am delighted to reveal that our Opening Speaker for the WordstoDeeds Conference 2023, Legal Translation and Risk, is the Right Honourable the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE.
Lady Hale retired as President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, the most senior Judge in the United Kingdom, in January 2020. Before becoming a Judge, she had a varied career, as an academic lawyer at the University of Manchester (also qualifying and practising for a while as a barrister in Manchester), as the first woman member of the Law Commission, where she led successful projects in Family Law and Mental Capacity Law.
She was appointed a High Court Judge in 1994, was promoted to the Court of Appeal in 1999, and in 2004 became the first and only woman ‘Law Lord’ in the House of Lords, then the apex court in the United Kingdom. In 2009, the Law Lords were translated into the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. She became its Deputy President in 2013 and its first woman President in 2017. In retirement she has spent her time in good works, events and writing – her memoir, Spiderwoman, A Life, was published in 2021. She is an honorary professor at UCL.
We still have a few places left for the conference. To register, go to the conference website, where the full programme is available, as well as the bios of all speakers, and many participant bios too.

Setting foundations for fairer trials for all in Greece through dialogue and reforms of court (and legal) interpreting was the subject of a conference organised by SYDISE (Hellenic Association of Court Interpreters) in Athens.
This has become an even more pressing need following the refugee crisis and the arrival of a large numbers of foreign nationals in in Greece. Correct interpretation is the only way to ensure a fair trial to everyone irrespective of their native language or origin. Continue reading →
