   3-5 September - Ensuring Patient Safety for Language Minority Patients
                                 Boston, USA

The conferences held to date have played an important role in documenting and motivating progress in this field, and have drawn the interest of attendees from all over the world. Established experts in medical interpreting practice and policy have strongly supported these meetings as an opportunity to share ideas with and lend moral support to each other. National health policy leaders have been invited to participate to share their points of view, and to be educated about the substance of and enthusiasm behind this movement. Newcomers to the field, especially medical interpreters and interpreter managers, have come to learn more about and to gain practical information to take back to their organizations, states & countries.

The format of the conference is grounded in workshop sessions that maximize audience participation, complemented by stakeholder meetings and plenary sessions on key national and international policy issues. IMIA provides the forum for new experts in the field to develop. This conference seeks to facilitate learning as an ongoing, dynamic and social process, and strives to offer engaging sessions in which diverse participants can form bonds, participate as learners and teachers, and feel integral to the learning process.

We believe presenters should make content relevant and meaningful, and offer ways to process information through dialogue, reflection, and application.

   9-23 September - Latin America and Writers-Translators
                                   Medellín, Columbia

Latin America and Writers-Translators: The image of the writer-translator has been one of the most significant characteristics in the specific case of literary translation, particularly in Latin America where translation is still not fully accepted as a discipline and as a profession in all quarteres. Tracing the paths that Latin-American writers have built through translation and self-translation or the paths that non-Latin-American writers have built through the translation of Latin-American literature entails asking ourselves questions about identities, interculturalities, influences, rejectionss and appropriations, about the construction of Latin-American ideas and multiple views of life, and about Latin-American influences upon other literatures and cultures. Questions arise around the controversial concept of "identity". Is it possible to talk about a Latin-American way of thinking? Is it possible to talk about a Latin-American identity? How do we describe this way of thinking? How do we depict this "identity"? Is it possible to discuss the "purity" of a culture? Is it appropriate to assign hierarchies to cultures and literatures? Translation as a dynamic act of continuous change may help us answer these questions or may even make them unnecessary. Accordingly, this is a call for papers focusing on the multiplicity, diversity, transdiscursivity and/or interculturality implied on translation. Deadlines Deadline for submission of proposed articles and a brief summary: August 16, 2010. Deadline for submission of articles for evaluation: October 15, 2010.

   16 September - Kazuraki: Adobe Systems’ Groundbreaking New Japanese Typeface
                                Adobe HQ in San Jose

Adobe Systems released a groundbreaking new OpenType Japanese font called Kazuraki (????) in late 2009, whose design was inspired by the calligraphy of 12th century artist and writer Fujiwara-no-Teika (????), who is considered one of the greatest poets in Japan's history. This typeface design, created by Adobe Systems' Senior Type Designer Ryoko Nishizuka (????), is both innovative and visually rich, and is free of the design constraints that are typical of Japanese fonts. Kazuraki has become an inspiration and model for other type designers and foundries, particularly those in Japan and China. Join Ken Lunde, Senior Computer Scientist of Adobe Systems, as he outlines the process of creating this unique typeface, from its distinctive design aspects, to the nitty-gritty details about its OpenType implementation.

                                     Warsaw, Poland

The goal of the meeting is to identify both those kinds of social coordination that matter most to humans and the aspects of language needed for such coordination. Examples will include the role of prosodic structure in physical coordination of mother and infant, affective coordination in dyads that align values, and the coordination of concept systems in individuals, dyads, and social groups. Thus we aim to consider patterns of linguistic activity that range from physical ones right up the “symbolic” and “normative” aspects of speech.

   19-21 September - Localization Project Managers Roundtable
                                     Reno, Nevada Area

Most Roundtable attendees have three or more years of experience in localization project management. As a result presentations and discussions deal with advanced topics. The format of the Localization Project Managers Roundtable relies on short presentations, some of them impromptu, followed by extensive discussions involving as many attendees as possible. For people looking for basic localization training and education, we recommend one of our Project Management seminars instead.
Typically, all presenters come from the group of attendees. Because of that, people signing up for the Roundtable should be willing to make a short presentation about one of their areas of expertise.
To ensure that topics are as relevant as possible to those participating, we are keeping open two periods. The topics for these two periods will be decided on the opening night of the Roundtable.
The Roundtable's success depends on people being willing to share information and experiences freely. To encourage that, no official minutes or records are kept or published. Attendees are free to keep their own notes.
Discussion of localization prices and details of vendor contracts is not permitted.
The conference is held at the scenic Granlibakken Conference Center at Lake Tahoe, California.

   23-25 September - Tracks and Treks in TS
                                      Leuven, Belgium

In the 1960s, it seemed plausible that academic research into translation would take a linguistic track. Close to half a century later, it is clear that the discipline of Translation Studies has followed a diversity of tracks, interacting with neighbouring disciplines and exploring a range of paradigms and methodologies. At the individual level, many scholars have been taking long treks from the practice and/or teaching of Translation towards the acquisition of theoretical and methodological tools with a view to gaining fresh insights into and widening their horizons on translation and interpreting. The 6th EST Congress will provide a good opportunity to reflect upon such tracks and treks in TS. What interesting evolutionary patterns can be identified in our young discipline, including TS ‘turns’, concepts, theories and research methods? Can these patterns be identified in the interests and work of Translation scholars? How has the TS community grown in terms of demographics, branches and sub-branches? How do they communicate and interact? What progress has been achieved in the investigation of various aspects of Translation, including Translation cognition, Translator training, Translation quality, Translation in its cultural environment and Translation in its social environment? And what new insights are being provided by historical, sociological and scientometric studies and overviews? Which are the new and emerging tracks that will lead to successful treks in TS?

                                Roma, Italy

AITI 1950-2010 Traduttori e Interpreti Professionisti al servizio dei cittadini, dell'economia e delle istituzioni. Il convegno verterà principalmente sulle figure del Traduttore/Interprete ISTITUZIONALE e GIUDIZIARIO e sul divario tra l'importanza di questo ruolo, le responsabilità che ne derivano e i problemi che i professionisti incontrano nell'esercizio della loro attività. Le istituzioni italiane da un lato si avvalgono ampiamente di tali professionisti e dall'altro continuano a escluderli da qualsiasi tutela e riconoscimento, e nel caso dei traduttori/interpreti giudiziari anche da un decoroso trattamento economico. Sono state contattate numerose personalità per interventi qualificati e sono confermati oratori del calibro di Angelo Deiana (presidente del comitato scientifico del CoLAP, esperto di economia della conoscenza e delle professioni), l’on. Pierluigi Mantini molto attivo nell'ambito del riconoscimento delle professioni, Davide Imola responsabile della Consulta CGIL per i professionisti, la prof.ssa Federica Scarpa, docente ordinario di Lingua e Traduzione dell'Università di Trieste, il Giudice Pres. Rosario Priore, il giornalista Giovanni Fasanella. Siamo in attesa inoltre della conferma di alti funzionari e di altri magistrati di prestigio. L’evento è aperto al pubblico oltre che ai soci.

Esa exposición irá acompañada de numerosos ejemplos e interrumpida constantemente por ejercicios de tipo práctico que los asistentes tendrán que realizar y corregir con el ponente.

   30 September - International Translation Day

On September 30, translators around the world celebrate the day of their patron saint, Jerome, and with it translation itself—a profession as old as humanity.
FIT’s official celebration of International Translation Day began in 1991, when Professor Gonie Bang and the federation’s public relations committee called for member associations to use the day to raise their profile. Their aim was to remind users of translation and interpreting services of the important work performed by translators, often with exemplary dedication and, more often still, in the shadows.
