The organisers have issued their first call for papers. Presentations and workshops are welcome on all topics related to translation, interpreting, editing and language. Presentations can be in Hebrew or English. Proposals for any other languages should be discussed with the Organizers. The organisers hope the 2012 conference will be a truly international one and will top the 2011 conference, which had over 400 participants from 12+ countries.
I attended the 2011 conference which was very well organised, with interesting topics, and an insight into a growing industry. For me personally it was great fun, with friendly people, fantastic food (see my scorecard) and all set in one of the world’s oldest and most interesting cities.
I’d recommend anyone visiting the conference to take a few extra days and visit more of Israel such as Tel Aviv or the Dead Sea. There’s so much to see and do you will not be bored or disappointed.
If you haven’t been to Israel before this conference is a superb opportunity to get to know a great country and its people.
