International conference hosted by the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (Bundesverband der
Dolmetscher und Übersetzer e. V.—“BDÜ”)
Bonn, 22–24 November 2019

Following in the footsteps of BDÜ's 2009 and 2012 Conferences, and the FIT Congress hosted in 2014—all of which took place in Berlin—true to its motto of “Interpreting the Future”, the BDÜ will organise another three-day international conference in November 2019, on the topic of:

“Translation and Interpreting 4.0—New Ways in the Digital Age”.

Translation and interpreting are the professions of specialists who leverage their expert knowledge and language skills to enable companies and institutions, banks and insurance companies, courts and law firms to communicate on a global scale.

Yet we find ourselves in the midst of fundamental upheaval affecting all sectors, with artificial intelligence, Big Data, the Internet of Things and  blockchain applications being just a few examples of the concepts brought about by digitalisation. Not only are these technologies changing the manner in which customers of translators and interpreters work, how they produce and use language content, how they procure language services: they are also altering how translators and interpreters them-selves work, and how they interact with their customers. As a consequence, quite a few business models pursued by freelance translators and interpreters, language service providers or corporate language services— which have been working reasonably well so far—will turn out to be a thing of the past in the foreseeable future.


Expert translators and interpreters, and specialists from the sectors and areas mentioned in the Call document, are invited to submit proposals for presentations, brief seminars or workshops covering the following topics, by:
31 January 2019.

Riding the Wave

Languages & the Media, the 13th International Conference on Language Transfer in Audiovisual Media

Radisson Blu Hotel, Berlin, June 8–10, 2020

The 2020 edition of Languages & the Media, the 13th International Conference on Language Transfer in Audiovisual Media, will be riding the wave of recent trends that are fast becoming reality in audiovisual localisation.

New working conditions are rolling in faster than ever before. Innovation is the order of the day. The industry is consolidating while new entrants are disrupting the conventional workplace. Platforms are proliferating. Immersive environments are becoming more pervasive. New workflows are emerging. Concurrent translation and post-editing are gaining ground. Language tools are being integrated and experimentation and reinvention abound.

The need for research has never been greater. With the validity of older norms and standards under scrutiny, new models of good practice are emerging, forcing the audiovisual localisation industry to take stock and re-examine audience needs. Legislation and regulation are also whipping up the wind of change. As our 2018 keynote speaker David Padmore pointed out, our shared goal is to break down language and sensory barriers to audiovisual content that educates, informs and entertains the world. To achieve this, all stakeholders must come together and collaborate to address our industry’s challenges with responsible, comprehensive and fair strategies. And what better place to do this than at the 13th Languages & the Media International Conference which will be held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin from June 8 – 10, 2020 under the overall theme “Riding the Wave”.

Throughout its 25-year long history, Languages & the Media has established itself as Europe’s leading conference in the AVT industry and is a vibrant hub for exchange, learning and discussion. At the Languages & the Media 2020, broadcasters, OTT platforms, language service providers, researchers, trainers, professionals, practitioners and all those who produce, market or distribute audiovisual content for information, entertainment or educational purposes will come together to address issues on how to thrive in this dynamic mediascape.
