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 (1) an annual Open Mic celebration of International Translation Day; (2) a professional conference offering workshops and presentations focusing on interpretation and translation, opportunities for discussion, networking, career development, and celebration; and (3) an exciting series of student-oriented, translation-themed events held on weekdays throughout the academic year.
On Saturday, April 6, 2019, in the Health Sciences Center, 7977 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, Confluence translation conference sessions throughout the day will feature a variety
of workshops and presentations on translation, interpretation, and translation studies.
The day's schedule will offer opportunities for informal networking. TENTATIVE SCHEDULE (PDF, )
