2012: JUBILATION 25 – Sydney, NSW
On 1-3 December 2012 (Saturday – Monday) at Macquarie University in Sydney, around 300 representatives of the translating and interpreting profession and industry came together for a weekend of sharing and learning for the 8th time since 1999. Academics and practitioners from Australia and all corners of the world met with language service providers from both private and public sectors during the conference which marked the silver jubilee of the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT).
Among the presenters was Don Watson, an Australian national figure known for being former Prime Minister Paul Keating’s speechwriter and adviser, Jost Zetzsche who joined in remotely to encourage translators to claim the machine translation (MT) territory, Renato Beninatto who gave his forecast for the next 25 years to come, Aline Remael from Artesis University College and Sandra Hale from University of NSW.
An article about the event was published in the Multilingual magazine.
Proceedings will be published in the near future. Meanwhile the DVD collection of the highlights of this amazing conference can be purchased from ArtFilms.
