What is Confluence? Confluence is a celebration of translation and interpretation that brings together translators, interpreters, educators, students, and others interested in the field of translation, including its literary, practical, and philosophical dimensions.
Confluence features an annual professional conference offering workshops and presentations focusing on interpretation and translation, opportunities for discussion, networking, career development, and celebration. Additional student-oriented, translation-themed events are held throughout the year, including an annual Open Mic celebration of International Translation Day.
