8th Critical Link International Conference


  • Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh Scotland (map)

The Centre for Translation & Interpreting Studies in Scotland (CTISS) is honoured to be hosting the 8th Critical Link International Conference. The conference will bring together all community/public service interpreting and translation stakeholders: community and public sector representatives, employers, developers of tools and technologies, policy makers, practitioners, professional bodies, researchers, service users, trainers and educators, TICS (translation, interpreting & communication support) service providers, and other interested parties to build on progress made to date in order to move forward.

The overarching theme of the conference is Critical LinkS – a new generation. The aim is to explore future-proofing community/public service Interpreting and translating: to investigate working together across professional, geographic, user-group and language communities (spoken and signed), through technology, and coping with current and emerging constraints (e.g. economic, environmental, geographic, legal, linguistic, social...). The conference will explore policy, practice, pedagogy, price, plus innovation in the field.
