2017 East Coast Interpreters and Translators Summit

DVTA is proud to announce the return of the East Coast Interpreters and Translators Summit on Saturday, May 6, 2017. The second annual event will feature a one-day slate of sessions on topics ranging from words recently added to the Real Academia Española's official Spanish dictionary to situations in which linguists may incur secondary trauma and how to handle them. Our Board is pleased to have lined up a number of key speakers, including local language industry professionals Jiri Stejskal, CETRA's CEO and former ATA president, and Deborah Saldaña, NICHC interpreter trainer, as well as Deborah Wexler, a translator and subtitling specialist who resides in California.

DVTA and/or ATA members may register for the event at a special early bird rate until March 26, after which the regular rate will apply until April 20. The Summit has received approval for 6 ATA and 6 AOPC CEU credits. We are also looking forward to hosting an ATA certification exam sitting on the following day, May 7.

La Salle University has graciously agreed to host this year's event again, and we are all looking forward to a great time of education and networking while we enjoy the company of our fellow language professionals.
