First International Translation Industry Conference in Serbia

The Serbian Association of Translation Companies SATC is organizing the first regional European translation industry conference in Serbia, on 9-10 November in Belgrade at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

The Balkan Language Industry Symposium (BLIS) will focus on modern technologies and trends. Over two days of conference, you will hear about neural machine translation, CAT software, boosting your website ROI, negotiation, translation quality and international standards, cooperation between agencies and freelancers and much more. Besides all this there will be informal events such as fun networking, a networking dinner and a Saturday sightseeing trip.

Today’s translation industry is worth more than 33 billion USD and growing, but it is rapidly changing. Language industry professionals know they must keep up to date to survive. Events like BLIS are a great opportunity to gain insight into the latest trends, to meet colleagues from all over the world and last but not least to find new clients.

There are many international conferences in this field, but attending them can easily cost several thousand euros. Now you don’t have to go to Barcelona or New York – SATC is bringing exciting speakers on many facets of the profession to your doorstep.
The conference programme is designed especially for language professionals, from company owners to freelancers and software suppliers, and those that would like to know more about the industry.

BLIS will bring together a local and international audience. Participants are expected from all over Europe. The semi-annual meeting of EUATC, the European Union of Associations of Translation Companies, is also taking place beside the conference, with representatives of all of Europe’s associations.

Come and learn something new!
