APTIS 2018

1st ANNUAL  CONFERENCE

Aston University, Birmingham
23-24 November 2018

Challenges and Opportunities in Teaching Translation & Interpreting

About the Conference

APTIS supports the use, application and impact of scholarly research into all aspects of translation and interpreting at UK and Irish HE institutions, and it also supports current and future professionals in the field. In order to do so, APTIS seeks to provide a forum for the discussion and elaboration of these aims by members and to consult and co-operate with other professional organisations and stakeholders in the achievement of common objectives.


The 1st Annual APTIS Conference, to be held at Aston University on 23-24 November 2018, will act as a platform from which to enable translator and interpreter trainers, professionals and academics alike, to exchange ideas about the challenges and opportunities in translation and interpreting teaching in the current Irish and British contexts.
