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.
The Network organises an annual in-person CPD workshop related to one of its fields. 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. Our most recent event, a Multilingual Theatre & Translation Workshop with Foreign Affairs theatre company, was held in London in March 2022.
MAT has also begun holding more frequent web-based meetings and get-togethers lasting for around an hour, to increase contact and social exchange between members.
In 2018, MAT took a stand at the Museums & Heritage Show at London Olympia to promote the interests and services of our members. We have also produced a promotional leaflet for the Network, available for distribution at public events and for use by MAT members.
If you are thinking about joining MAT, please get in touch with our membership Secretary Mary Consonni.
Two-year membership costs £20 for FITI/MITI and £10 for other ITI categories.
