IJET-29 in Osaka

""Rethinking the role of human linguists ― 言葉に命を吹き込む""

Announcement of IJET-29

The Japan Association of Translators (JAT) has organized International Japanese-English Translation Conferences (IJETs) every year as a place for professionals to meet and exchange ideas and as an opportunity to learn about the business with sessions on topics covering all aspects of translation and interpreting between English and Japanese. In 2018, IJET-29 will be held in Osaka.

At this conference, we hope to not only discuss our role amid globalization and the rapid advance of language-related technologies such as machine translation, but also how we can bring life to translation and interpreting.

IJET sessions generally cover many topics related to translation and interpreting ranging from technical to literary translation and interpreting and everything in between, as well as the business and ergonomic aspects of working in this field.

IJET Dates: June 30-July 1

Registration is now open

Opening Ceremony and Keynote Speech:  June 29 (evening: Open 4 pm Start 5 pm)   

Zenyasai Venue: Lagunaveil Premier (June 29 19:30~)


JAT Special Interest Groups will also organize pre-IJET sessions on June 29th (morning and afternoon) at the Osaka City Central Public Hall.


We look forward to seeing you at IJET-29 in Osaka.
