Invitation to TransCon 2014 – as Observers

The Department of Applied English Linguistics (LTBI) of the Graduate School of Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia, is inviting you to participate in:

TransCon 2014

The 4th Atma Jaya International Conference in Translation & Interpretation Studies
13 September 2014
“Empowering Translators: The Art of Thriving in the Translation Industry.”

The Department of Applied English Linguistics (LTBI), Graduate School of Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia, invites all those interested in translation and interpretation studies as well as those working in the industry to participate in TransCon 2014.

There are three different events you can attend in TransCon 2014. The Main Conference purely focuses on a wide range of aspects of translation and interpretation studies. In addition to the Main Conference, we also invite all professional translators/interpreters to submit an abstract and share their professional experiences and expertise in the Professional Sharing Sessions. It is always interesting to hear a small episode of a professional translator’s life: the challenges in the translation industry and strategies to cope with the issues. Furthermore, in TransCon 2014, participants are privileged to attend a Legal Translation Workshop, during which they will be introduced to the common issues and challenges of legal translation (Indonesian <> English) through translation practice and feedback from the authority.

This TransCon 2014 is therefore especially targeted at both novice and sophisticated translators, academics, researchers, students, aspiring translators or interpreters. They will be able to explore the theoretical aspects of translation and interpretation and at the same time gain hands-on skills and tips from professional translators.
