Get ready for this year's NETA conference: DIVERSITY THROUGH LANGUAGE, held on Saturday, April 28, 2018, in collaboration with UMass Boston at the UMass Boston Campus Center, 3rd floor.
conference brings together academic scholars, researchers, and experts to give attendees
the opportunity to learn and exchange ideas and to network with other members
of the translation and interpretation field. The conference features four tracks:
- Auxiliary/support services/technology, and
- Academic section.
See the full conference schedule.
The 2018 conference committee has decided to have a book table again this year where NETA's published translators and authors can display their works.
Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in our book exhibit.
Please contact Milena to submit the names of your titles or to ask questions about this aspect of our conference.
The following are CEAP-accredited sessions for CCHI-certified interpreters. Each presenter will provide a code at the end of the session for you to write down on the sheet provided at the registration desk. The code will serve as proof of
attending each session. Please note that some sessions occur at the same time, so the maximum hours granted will be
• A Country of Immigrants? Settler Colonialism, Immigration, and Race in the U.S. (keynote address)
• Ethics or Professional Conduct?
• Skill-Building Strategies for Interpreters and Interpreter Trainers
• Demystifying Sight Translation in Healthcare Settings
• Assessing Your Sources in Terminology Research
• VRI - The Real Effect on Interpretation Services
• Visible Violence
• Translating for a Minority Group: The Politics of Language
• Considering Linguistic Racism and the Problematics of “Diversity” For Translators and Interpreters of English
In order to get credit with the IMIA/NBCMI, you will need to submit a completed attendance sheet (see registration desk). In all likelihood, the interpreter sessions will count for CMIs, and perhaps some of the translation tracks that CCHI preapproved. NETA does not guarantee that the NBCMI will accept all sessions you attend.
The NETA Conference has been approved for 6 hours (6 CEPs). After the conference, you will be able to request your
certificate of attendance on NETA's website (www.netaweb.org)
After the break out sessions, don’t miss Chris Durban, Endnote Presenter, translator and author of Translation: Getting It Right, will share her insights about the translation market and the skills translators need to build a practice at the top end of the market in her presentation: Filthy Lucre: Translators and Money.
Top off the day at our annual reception, enjoy delicious food and network with friends and colleagues!
