AUSIT National
Conference 2019

18-19 October 2019 | Hobart, Tasmania

Translators and interpreters exist in an increasingly globalised society, both shaping and being shaped by cultural, political and technological shifts. Shifts toward multicultural societies have enabled community interpreting and community translation to flourish, creating previously unforeseen roles and tasks for translators. At the same time, translators and interpreters keep being the backbone of multilateral and multilingual organisations, which enables them to play a pivotal role in global politics. The rise of computers has led to numerous changes in the way the T&I industry functions and near-instantaneous communications have transformed the work environment. Traditional roles have been replaced by: multilingual Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), subtitling (both professional and fansubbing), localisation, or Machine Translation Post-Editing (MTPE). Interpreters, meanwhile, are faced with the prospect of video-remote interpreting (VRI), procurement platforms, and tablet interpreting. How have and how will these phenomena change the way T&Is work? How will they change the perception of our roles and our status? What are the ethical considerations associated with these new modes of translating and interpreting? What are the ethical considerations associated with new roles? How does this affect our teaching and training?

This conference aims to bring together professionals and researchers in the T&I field to discuss these and more questions about translators and interpreters in today’s world and the world of the future.
