This special all-day event in London is primarily for translators, focusing on the specific challenges faced in the modern world; a great opportunity for fellow professionals to come together to learn from and network with each other.

CIOL Online Conference

Date: Thursday 21st March 2024

Time: from 10am – 3.30pm

CIOL is dedicated to supporting translators, interpreters, educators and linguists in all walks of life, both in the UK and internationally. Our online conference will be of interest to all linguists and lovers of languages, wherever they are in the world.

The programme includes renowned lexicographer, broadcaster and CIOL Vice President Susie Dent, CIOL Fellow and vastly experienced conference interpreter, consultant and trainer Maha El-Metwally and Professor of Linguistics Michelle Sheehan, among others, who will bring to life the rich interplay of languages, linguistics and the lives and work of linguists.
