International Colloquium of Translation

I conjunction with the FIT Council meeting in Istanbul, Jiri attended a three-day International Colloquium of Translation organized by the Turkish association and held at Istanbul University. This was the first international conference of the young Turkish organization (established 10 years ago), and it attracted about 300 attendees from nearly 30 countries. At the invitation of the conference organizer, Jiri delivered two presentations: one on T&I organizations in the U.S. with a focus on the American Translators Association (ATA), and one on ATA’s public relations efforts.
