The Multi-lingual Conference 2018 will be held in week 20 from February 12th to 16th.

 This 5-day conference will include all TIS, PGTI and MTI students from six language directions (Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Chinese) with an aim to provide each student a chance to put what s/he has learned in class into real-time practice as an interpreter. University of Essex ‘Interpreter of the Day’ will be voted by the audience and awarded on-site at the Closing Ceremony.

Multi-Lingual Conference 2018

Relay interpreting mode will be used on Day 5 to provide students from all 6 language directions an opportunity to work together. 22 guest and student speakers are invited to present at the conference.

All are welcome to attend the conference and provide feedback to the 67 interpreters.
