Funding provided by the Instructional Development Travel (IDT) Grant awarded by the Office of Faculty Development allowed me to attend the 58th Annual Conference of the American Translators Association held in Washington DC in October 2017.

This association was founded in 1959 and is now the largest professional association of translators and interpreters in the United States with more than 11,000 members in 90 countries.

One of its primary missions is to promote the professional development of translators and interpreters. Annually, the ATA organizes a conference, a four-day international event offering language professionals more than 150 continuing education sessions, seminars, and workshops.

This poster presents a selection of the sessions that I attended, including a summary of some of the dilemma’s and questions that translators and interpreters face.
