1st Croatian Translation Forum Zagreb, November 5, 2015
We invite participants from all areas of the translation industry, language services providers, translation companies and agencies, technical and software providers, professional translators, representatives of the academic community, professors at linguistic departments, students, researchers, CATA members, and future CATA members to apply to participate in a unique event, taking place in Croatia for the very first time, which will provide insight into the state of the translation industry both in Croatia and in Europe.
Our aim is to organize a unique event and to enable a meeting of industry experts and all participants who wish to expand their knowledge about the translation industry. We will cover some of the global trends, technological achievements, marketing approaches, and the importance of translation norms and standards from multiple perspectives. We will cover these and other topics dynamically, with the help of internationally recognized speakers whose presentations will mainly be about the translation industry and how to understand it better.
The aim of the forum organized by CATA is to determine and promote best practice examples in supplying language services, with an emphasis on the dissemination of knowledge and cooperation with the aim of developing and protecting economic interests of the translation industry, as well as promoting quality standards with continuous efforts to raise the quality of agency translation. In particular, the emphasis will be placed on cooperation between translation agencies / companies and freelance translators, as well as between the associations of translation agencies and other associations of professional translators in Croatia.
In short, the aim is to gather, motivate and bring closer all participants sharing similar aims and interests. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the work of our sponsors, who will present translation applications and software, including CAT tools and business management systems. In addition, the forum will also provide you with the opportunity to meet both new colleagues and to reconnect with those you have already met, during networking breaks, lunch and the closing dinner on the day of the event. We invite you to the pre-conference networking cocktail on the evening of November 4, 2015, at a venue in the city centre that will be announced shortly. Follow our social networks and news posts to learn more about the first event of this kind that will take place at the Hotel Dubrovnik, one of the most renowned hotels in Zagreb with a view on the city’s central square, the Ban Josip Jelačić Square.
