Call for Presentations for the 2019 OTTIAQ Conference
The Ordre des traducteurs, terminologues et interprètes agréés du Québec (OTTIAQ) is accepting proposals for presentations at its upcoming annual conference, to be held on Friday, September 27, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Montréal’s Palais des congrès.
The annual conference is OTTIAQ’s marquee event. It is attended by hundreds of language professionals, students, and others experts in translation, terminology, and interpretation. OTTIAQ is the largest body of language professionals in Canada and the authority on translation, terminology, and interpretation in Quebec.
For 2019, the Conference Program Committee is seeking proposals on the following theme:
Reinventing Yourself Through Growth and Diversification
The language professions, like many others, are subject to pressures such as technological advancements, the talent shortage, global competition and evolving work practices. As a result, more than ever before, translation, terminology and interpretation professionals must take innovative measures to continue to stand out and thrive in the various settings in which they practice. That means stepping out of the comfort zone and questioning the way things are done; it means opening up to peers and no longer working in isolation. In 2019, in order to succeed in an increasingly complex environment, language professionals are called upon to develop a multitude of skills in areas like linguistic advice, project management, research, and IT.
