The programme for the 2017 Language Industry Summit, taking place from 21-22 September in London, has now been published.
Available to view in full on the ATC website, the programme has been designed to appeal to the widest possible language industry audience with a line-up of international speakers, who will be presenting papers during the five key strands of the Summit:
- Breakthroughs in technology designed to increase productivity, enhance quality and profitability
- Marketing in a changing environment
- Growing a sustainable language business
- People and relationships
- Quality standards and why they are good for business
Additionally, the Summit has lined up a choice of four challenging Master Classes. The Summit will be rounded off with a preview of the results of the 2017 UK Language Industry study, which will reveal current and long-term trends for the £1 billion sector.
Ruth Partington, chair of the ATC Conference Organising Committee commented: “This year we have developed a deliberately diverse programme to appeal to the broadest range of language industry professionals. Once again we have reached out to as many people as possible by offering generous early-bird discounts, not just for ATC members, but for individuals belonging to a wide range of professional language groups both in the UK and across the world. This approach has ensured that we consistently attract delegates from around the globe – last year 35 countries were represented.”
Early-bird booking rates for the conference are now available, with discounted rates available until 31st August for members of the ATC, Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI), the European Language Industry Association (ELIA), the European Union of Associations of Translation Companies (EUATC), the Association of Language Companies (ALC), the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) and Globalization and Localization Association (GALA). Even if individuals do not belong to any of those organisations, there are still early-bird discounts available until the end of August.
