FIT Congress 2020 — Call for papers

Fristen for å sende inn bidrag er satt til 30. april 2020.

The International Federation of Translators (FIT) and the Asociación Cubana de Traductores e Intérpretes (ACTI), as the hosting organisation, are pleased to announce the XXII FIT World Congress, to be held from 3 to 5 December 2020, in Varadero, Cuba. All language professionals are welcome to join us for the first FIT World Congress ever to be held in Latin America.

The work language professionals do is not always valued enough. However, our work makes it possible to enjoy world literature and the fruits of scientific and technological progress, assist those affected by conflict or natural disasters, and access different cultures. Understanding among nations and the pursuit of peace would be at risk without the contributions of language professionals.

Translation, terminology and interpretation support the human rights and fundamental freedoms that are crucial for sustainable development, inclusive governance, peace and social equity. They are vital to creating a viable and desirable future. Translators, terminologists, interpreters and other language professionals are invited to dialogue on the broad theme A World without Barriers: The Role of Language Professionals in Building Culture, Understanding and Peace.
