Languages & The Media

In the following three days, from November 5 – 7, 2014, the 10th Languages & The Media Conference, under the theme Smart Technologies, Smart Translations, will take place in Berlin. It will bring together some of the world’s leading researchers, language practitioners, translators, interpreters, software developers and all those who produce, market, or distribute audiovisual materials for information, entertainment or educational purposes to discuss these pressing questions.

Here is their excellent programme.

Some very interesting interviews and articles have been published ahead of the conference.
