Event Details

In May 2017, the United Nations has officially declared September 30th International Translation Day, recognizing
 
the practical contribution of language professionals, both in conference servicing and in the field.. including in the maintenance of peace and security, peacekeeping, the promotion of human rights and operational activities for sustainable development” and “that respect for the world’s cultural and linguistic diversity is an essential prerequisite for the promotion, in the United Nations, of the spirit of openness, equity and dialogue.”
 
Join us on September 30th for a celebration of International 2017 Translation Day where you will have an opportunity to:
  • Share your perspectives on how new technologies are disrupting the translation field and transforming your role
  • Network with colleagues and meet MCIS' Translation and Translator Training teams over a delicious lunch
  • See a special screening of a documentary on meditation and mindfulness, as one of the ways to manage disruptions by increasing awareness and clarity.
The tickets for a raffle will be available for purchase on the day of the event - all proceeds to be donated to Translators Without Borders!
 
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to celebrate your day in the company of colleagues who believe that #LanguageRightsMatter!
 
We hope to see you there!
