Translating and the Computer 43

TC43: Call for proposals

The TC conference series is a leading forum for users, researchers, developers and vendors of translation technology tools to present and discuss latest developments and practices. It is a distinctive event where translators, interpreters, academics and business representatives from translation companies, international organisations, universities and research labs as well as freelance professionals and language service providers interact, exchange ideas and discuss current trends and future expectations.

The TC conference takes the form of peer-reviewed presentations and posters and features panel discussions and workshops.

Conference topics

Contributions are invited on any topic related to technologies used in translation and interpreting, including, but not limited to computer assisted translation and interpreting tools, translation memory software, terminology management, machine translation and applications, customisation, training and tuning of MT engines, quality assessment and control, interoperability, subtitling, natural language processing for translation and interpreting as well as localisation, and translation workflow and management.

Other important topics are training (both initial and ongoing), artificial intelligence influence on the rapidly changing translation and interpreting industry, multilingual corpora management, ergonomics and suitability of tools and resources for translators and interpreters, collaboration between translators and translation companies, and mobile technologies applied to translation and interpreting.

Virtual rather than On-site conference

While we were very much hoping that we could be able to hold an onsite conference again, we are opting to hold the 2021 conference On the Web, as we did in 2020, given that the Covid-19 situation will most probably not improve sufficiently. To make everything as straightforward as possible for everyone, we have opted for a virtual event in November 2021. The actual dates of this conference will be firmed up shortly.


Proposals for original unpublished papers and posters are invited, as well as proposals for workshops and discussion panels. Papers and posters may report on research, commercial translation and interpretation products or user experiences. Proposals should be submitted via the START conference submission system at www.softconf.com/l/tc2021<https://url6.mailanyone.net/v1/?m=1lXku9-00079r-6K&i=57e1b682&c=2mkkcswmSzu8nSfNTzDuOyrFAUpV2FH79cxk7n9Fxq47PqaO1HAsZHG4e-7gjGdKNZiDabYPVr8H5tdZLXJrOuKR6f_x9Ww2HUYuMAySAC14-6ufdU9q3rXGAEz6vhPLo6rp4T1hQXUcb3wBWliwuLgg32r3afYb0Kq2zkRaL9uhyDpZW-14xeRBcaPshGEKw1BrWA219Tb-Fi7TGTRSrbYu2iJ_0dD_GFnOXXD6PEQ>.
