It is my sincere pleasure to announce that the closing keynote of the conference #W2D2017 Legal Translation to the Next Level will be delivered by Henry Liu, President of the International Federation of Translators and Special Advisor to the Chief Justice of New Zealand. His talk is entitled “The Case Against Plain Language“.
We are delighted and most grateful for the mark of support that this shows for the conference initiative.
The XXI FIT (International Federation of Translators) Congress will be held in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia from 3-5 August 2017. The emphasis 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 more.
