The CATA-organized 1st Croatian Translation Forum was held on 5th November 2015 at the “Ban Jelacic” conference hall of Hotel Dubrovnik in Zagreb.
This unique event and the first of its kind in Croatia attracted many professionals from different areas of the language industry, as well as the representatives of the academic community from the entire region of Southeast Europe. The forum was attended by translators, professors of linguistics, IT experts and other professionals from the translation industry, and the all-day series of sessions held by the leading experts from the region and from Europe covered the main aspects of translation industry.
The speakers held presentations about the future of translation industry, technological and market trends in the industry, legal aspects and standards of the industry, as well as the cooperation of LSPs and the academic institutions, while the two panels held during the forum covered the issues and perspectives of the industry and the cooperation and functions of the associations of translators and LSPs.
The first Croatian translation forum ended successfully and we hope it will become a tradition that will help include the Croatian translation in the contemporary trends of Europe and of the world.
