In-person conferences

What is the difference between regional and international conferences?

International conferences take place once a year and are larger than regional conferences. Their target audience are all users. As a consequence, international conferences are English-only events.

Regional conferences are intended primarily for translators who live in a particular area or work in a particular language. Sessions at regional events may be in English or the local language, and some sessions may address themes that are of interest primarily to those in the local area or working in the selected language. While those who neither work in the relevant language nor live in the local area will not be prevented from attending regional events, it is important that the target audience be communicated clearly, so that those who choose to attend anyway will not be disappointed.
