ESIST are delighted to support Points of View in Translation and Interpreting Conference, which will be held in Kraków, 22-23 June 2017.

The ‘Points of View in Translation and Interpreting’ conference has been organised by the Jagiellonian University since 2011. Its first edition ­ ‘Points of View in Audiovisual Translation’ ­ focused on audiovisual translation. The leading theme of the second edition ­ ‘Points of View in Translator¹s Competence and Translation Quality’ ­ was quality assurance in translation and translator education.

In 2017, the conference changes its name to ‘Points of View in Translation and Interpreting’, and the topics covered will pertain to both translation and interpreting. The organisers’ main objective is to strengthen the platform for understanding and exchange of ideas between translators, translation industry and Translation Studies researchers.

Begining in 2017, the conference will be organized biannualy. We believe that this conference is even more necessary as Translation Studies is still not officially recognized as scholary discipline in Poland.
