ITI Conference 2022

Call for papers

The ITI Conference is the biggest event in the UK translation and interpreting calendar. With four tracks, including a dedicated interpreting track, keynotes, special guests, a gala dinner and social events over two days, it attracts delegates from all corners of the UK, Europe and beyond.

In 2022 the ITI Conference will be in Brighton for the first time, on the English south coast and in the stunning setting of the Grand Hotel, right on the waterfront. For those unable to attend in person, content will also be available online.

The conference theme  'Embracing change, emerging stronger' focusses on the way in which the translation and interpreting profession has changed in an unprecedented way over the past two years. We will be exploring how we can rise to these challenges and embrace the changes they bring with them, enabling us all to emerge stronger into the future.

We want to hear from you

Whether you work in translation, interpreting or any other field, we want to hear from you if you have a relevant topic you would like to present on.

Topics of interest for presentations include, but are not limited to:

• The new normal and changing roles
• The impact of technology on linguistic roles
• Approaching new specialisations
• Career progression and professionalism
• Diversifying
• Tackling daily challenges

We would be particularly interested to hear from those working as public service or community interpreters.
