Translation Conferences 2019
Congratulations! You found the Translation Conferences 2019 overview!
Since a couple of years ago I publish an overview of translation conferences in the upcoming year. This year I proudly present to you the translation conferences 2019 edition – made possible by hundreds of volunteers who dedicate a huge amount of time to organize the best translation conferences in the world. This translation conferences overview is only a non-exhaustive list, meant to help you find a translation conference in your neighbourhood (or somewhat further away if you love to travel).
Why should you attend a translation conference in 2019?
The job of translators is highly interesting, but a bit lonely. Attending a translation conference might help you to learn new things and to connect to colleagues in real life. Most of the conferences are not free, but they are highly rewarding. And in some cases you can earn PE points as well!
I wrote some useful tips for attending translation conferences here.
Do you like the overview? Then please share it with your peers!
I hope to meet you at a translation conference in 2019!

Hi Irene, thank you very much for this extensive list!
I select the conferences based on their relevance and nature. While an SDL hosted conference could be very interesting, it does not match with my criteria. Hence I leave it out of scope, listing only the somewhat ‘bigger’ or ‘more interesting’ or ‘more international’ conferences. This just as an indication of my selection procedure.
While putting my list together not al dates are confirmed, so often I do not include that conferences until I have more information.
Your list is therefore a great addition!
Could you please add the 13th Brazilian Forum of Translators and 7th Internacional Forum of Translators, to be held in João Pessoa, Brazil, from October 7th-11th, 2019?
