Eighth Asia-Pacific Translation and Interpreting Forum (APTIF)

Welcome to join us at the Eighth Asia-Pacific Translation and Interpreting Forum (APTIF8) to be held in Xi’an, China on June 17-18, 2016. Starting from 2015, the name of the forum is changed from the "Asian Translators Forum (ATF)" to the "Asia-Pacific Translation and Interpreting Forum (APTIF)". Here, you will find all the information you need, whether you are planning to present at this international forum, or whether you are a prospective attendee interested in gaining an overview of new development in the translation and interpreting industry in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Theme

The theme of this year's conference is "Translation and Interpreting in Tomorrow's Asia-Pacific Region", representing the diverse changes taking place in the Asia-Pacific region.

Name change

This year, we have changed the name of the forum from the "Asian Translators Forum (ATF)" to the "Asia-Pacific Translation and Interpreting Forum (APTIF)". The reason for this is to reflect the diversity of the Forum's presenters and attendees, and its expanding focus on translation and interpreting not just within Asia, but also around the Pacific Rim. It also reflects the increasingly global nature of translation and interpreting and their close relationship with international political relations, trade, cultural exchange, and business.

Conference organisers

The Eighth APTIF is co-hosted by Translators Association of China (TAC) and the International Federation of Translators (FIT), and organized by Xi'an International Studies University (XISU).

Forum history

Since the founding of the Forum in 1995, it has been held seven times—four times in China, and once each in South Korea, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

The Forum was founded to showcase translation and interpreting developments in the wider Asian region, and to allow translation and interpreting scholars, professionals, industry leaders, and other interested parties to meet and share developments in the regional translation and interpreting industry. By doing this, the Forum aims to raise the profile of translation and interpreting in the Asia Pacific region, and to showcase exciting changes that are taking place here, as well as providing an opportunity for attendees to meet with internationally-renowned scholars and professional practitioners in the field. << Pack Up
