Job exchange

The "Interpreting the Future" conference brings translators and interpreters together with clients and employers. Businesses, authorities and institutions are all on board together, maximising the benefit for both sides.

Experienced freelance translators and interpreters, or new members of the profession on the search for a job – everyone can make contact with customers and employers here. Representatives of national and European businesses and institutions will be in attendance. They will provide information in presentations and one-on-one meetings on opportunities and career prospects within their organisations.

The Job Exchange will take place in parallel with the conference, predominantly in the tent in the open space behind the Henry Ford Building. Representatives of the businesses and institutions taking part will be available to all conference participants at their information booths on the conference days.

The businesses and institutions taking part will also have the opportunity to introduce their organisations to a larger group of potential applicants and interested freelancers and provide information on the professional opportunities available there at 30 minute presentations in a lecture hall on each of Saturday and Sunday. This can be the starting point for more detailed discussions with individuals or groups of applicants.

Some of the businesses and institutions will request applications to be submitted direct to them by a certain date in advance of the conference, so that they can compile a shortlist. They will then make appointments with the applicants for the meetings during the conference.

We will publish information on the businesses and institutions taking part in the Job Exchange and their job profiles in the course of the coming weeks as we receive that information. To date, the following institutions and businesses have agreed to take part in the Job Exchange:
