ITI Media, Arts & Tourism Network



The Media, Arts & Tourism Network (MAT Network) is a Subject Network of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI). It is open to interpreters and translators working in all language combinations and all ITI membership categories who are active in the specialist fields of media, arts and tourism, including literary translation (fiction and non-fiction).

Our members have successfully met the standard and criteria for ITI membership and abide by its code of conduct.

What sort of events do we organise?

Every two years, the Network organises an in-person CPD workshop related to one of its fields, holding events online in the intervening years. Past events have included the subject areas of tourism, literary translation, translating business films, translating for music (a joint event with ITI WMG), methods of collaboration, translating art, and a private tour of the V&A. In 2018, MAT took a stand at the Museums & Heritage Show at London Olympia to promote the interests and services of our members. Our most recent events have included a Multilingual Theatre & Translation Workshop with Foreign Affairs theatre company, in London in March 2022. Then, in October 2023 we held online workshops on creative and life writing, as well as self-publishing.

MAT has also begun holding monthly Zoom-meetings to increase contact and social exchange between members.
