Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society is proud to present its 2023 Annual Conference (#NOTIS2023) in honor of International Translation Day (#ITD2023). This lively event brings together translation & interpretation professionals throughout the Pacific Northwest. Come join us for a fun day of networking, conference sessions, panel discussions, and more with the best in the business!
As the United Nations states on their website, "International Translation Day is meant as an opportunity to pay tribute to the work of language professionals, which plays an important role in bringing nations together, facilitating dialogue, understanding and cooperation, contributing to development and strengthening world peace and security." This is precisely what NOTIS endeavors to do—all year round—and we couldn't do it without you.
So come on out and celebrate with us on September 30, won't you? Don't miss this opportunity to meet your present and future colleagues, earn CEUs, and learn more about the state of T&I in the Pacific Northwest and around the world!
