    Great job, Pieter! Thanks a lot for this awesome timeline. What do you think about supplementing the list with “Add to Calendar” buttons next to the events?

    III International Conference on Economic, Business, Financial and Institutional Translation
    III International Conference on Economic, Business, Financial and Institutional Translation
    June 27-29, 2018
    University of Alicante, Spain
    Webpage: https://dti.ua.es/en/tradeco/iii-icebfit/iii-international-conference-on-economic-business-financial-and-institutional-translation.html

    According to The Language Services Market: 2015 (De Palma et al.) demand for language services, including translation, comes not only from Internet users, who require instant access to information in their own language, but also from companies that are attempting to compete and offer their products and services in several languages. The public sector and non-profit organizations also require language services to enable them to communicate effectively beyond their respective territorial boundaries. In this context, economic, commercial, financial and institutional translation plays a major role in the professional translation market and the workload for this type of translation is larger than other types such as literary translation.
    Many translator training centers are aware of this reality as well as the need for training in this field. Their programs demonstrate this by including subjects dealing not only with specialized translation, but also with business or institutional translation. However, although trainers and researchers are increasingly studying this type of translation and its relation to terminology, new technologies, teaching, or contrastive analysis, it seems that this research does not currently produce the same volume of publications as, for example, literary translation.
    In this scenario, the III International Conference on Economic, Business, Financial and Institutional Translation, following successful conferences in 2014 (University of Alicante) and 2016 (University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières), seeks both to contribute to this area of research publication and to bring together researchers, teachers, translation practitioners, and specialists to have the opportunity to interact with colleagues and to share their experience and research.

    Hi Pieter,

    I came across your conference overview some time ago this year, and have been checking it regularly since then. Its timeline design is very clear and useful. Just a small question – do you aim to set up something similar for 2019?
