8th International Conference of the Iberian Association of Translation and Interpreting Studies (AIETI8)



The University of Alcalá (UAH) (Madrid, Spain) and the FITISPos (Training and Research in Public Service Interpreting and Translation) Research Group, together with AIETI (the Iberian Association of Translation Studies and Interpreting) are pleased to announce the 8th International Conference of the Iberian Association of Translation and Interpreting Studies (AIETI8) which will be held from 6th to 10th March 2017 at the University of Alcalá (Madrid).

The main objective of this international conference is to continue the work of dialogue and exchange of experiences and projects carried out in previous conferences between professionals and the academic community, educational authorities and public and private institutions, as well as students and general public interested in intercultural communication in general and in translation and interpreting in particular.
The theme aims to reflect on expanding the limits of public service translation and interpreting.
We live in a globalized world dominated by English, but also in constant contact with less widely used languages. We are witnessing a relentless advance in technology applied to translation and interpreting, but also need linguistic and cultural intermediaries in common areas of conflict and migration. We demand the recognition of the professions of the translator and interpreter while their performance is, in fact, very frequently fused. The training of the translator/interpreter is proposed by universities, but its collaboration with other industry language professionals is required. There is an increase in the number of institutional relationships in education, but greater collaboration with companies is required. We are aware of the increase of multilingualism and cultural diversity; however, we need to redefine the concept of translation competence. We are, therefore, in times of change and aware that we need to overcome limits and assimilate fast advances; we, thus, need to sum up and not subtract.
AIETI 8 is intended to become a forum for discussion, aimed at reflecting on the most current and updated research in both academic and professional contexts. AIETI8 wants to get closer to the real needs of professionals in intralinguistic communication; the latest innovations applied to practice; the most comprehensive studies on translation and interpreting in different areas of expertise. In short, the main objective is to promote and disseminate the constant changes and advances in the field of translation and interpreting and their relationships with the environment.
The conference will be structured in two parts:
  • Seminars (6<7 March 2017) dedicated to practical aspects applied to Public Services Interpreting and Translation.
  • The actual conference (8<10 March 2017). The conference will include plenary lectures, communications, posters and round tables. Communications will have a maximum duration of 30 minutes (including the time allotted for discussion / questions). We look forward to receiving contributions on the following areas, but not exclusively:
  • Innovation and technological advances in Interpreting & Translation in general.
  • New approaches in the theory of translation / interpreting.
  • Analysis of progress on collaboration between I&T professionals in general and the work market.
  • Teaching and learning of I&T in different areas (education, health, administrative and legal settings).
  • Localization, post[editing and automatic translation.
  • Literary translation
  • Audiovisual Translation
  • Technical translations (legal, scientific, etc.)
  • Interpreting
  • The official conference languages will be Spanish, English, Portuguese, Catalan, Basque and Galician.
