The Association of Estonian Translation Companies has been organising translation conferences since 2013. Our next conference will be held in 2017.


The title of our 2015 conference was THE TRANSLATION INDUSTRY: FROM THE INSIDE OUT AND FROM THE OUTSIDE IN.

This conference focused on new developments in the translation industry and adapting to them, and the creation and maintenance of a team and communication. We focused on giving answers and managing people more skilfully.

The title of our 2014 conference was COOPERATION CONFERENCE.

The main aim of the conference was to enliven communication between the different players in the field of translation, to exchange experiences, and in doing so find good solutions to improve translation quality and the reputation of the service. The participants included translators, editors, representatives of translation companies and agencies, university students and teachers.

In 2013, the language conference TRANSLATED REPUTATION was held.

The main topics – what we can all do on behalf of our language, the cornerstone on which our cultural and linguistic space, and our identity, rests. Translation-based society – how does translation solidify the reputation of my organisation? A good translation of a company’s representative materials conveys the reputation of the company and the country as a whole.
