Together 2016: "Developing our Connections", Barcelona, WTC, 11-12 Feb, 2016

Programme

Together 2016 was a great success!

Thank you to:
The 350+ registrations from 39 countries across 5 continents
Our Sponsors, Exhibitors and Partners who believed in Together and helped make it happen
36 speakers representing all perspectives across the industry
And 11 volunteers, translation students from Elia Exchange university members, for supporting us during Together 2016

Join us in Berlin next February for Together 2017, where LSPs and freelance translators will once again come together to strengthen their connections and start new working relationships. The dates and venue will be confirmed soon and Call for Papers will soon be announced, so be sure to stay connected and receive Together updates.

Relationships

Will focus on the main aspects that all parties involved in the industry need to refine and implement, such as training, networking, marketing tools and negotiation. The panels will encourage a lively exchange of knowledge, case studies and new ideas aimed at boosting the development of the industry.

Growth

Will lead you along a path from the first steps of the profession – graduation, internships, job placements – to the top of it. The needs of all stakeholders will be analysed and discussed, in terms of talent development, roles required by the market and new forms of collaboration between language professionals and companies.

Technology

Will be completely devoted to and hosted by technology providers. It is the ideal place to attend a training session on your favourite translation tool, or to learn about the new perspectives of the language industry, both for language professionals and companies.
