Celebrate the coming of spring with JAT's first online joint gathering event, Spring JAT hosted by the Tokyo Activities Committee (TAC) joined by other Special Interest Groups (SIGs.) Under the concept, "Open Day," breakout session rooms are open to members and non-members alike, to move between rooms and enjoy the different topics.

JAT SIGs and RACs (Regional Activities Committees) offer learning opportunities and create a place to exchange ideas and insights for professional translators and interpreters as well as anyone interested in the profession. In Spring JAT, each room will have a unique topic led by a TAC or SIG moderator so you can visit the room of your interest. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to participate in Spring JAT wherever you are in the world. We look forward to seeing you!

Session Summary

[JAT Tokyo Activities Committee (JATTAC)]
Session title: What language do you dream in? - A look into a multilinguist’s mind

How does using multiple languages affect the way you think? What do you find most difficult in switching between languages? In this interview style session, a multilinguist shares her experience in acquiring multiple languages and navigating them in her professional and personal life. After the interview section, a Q&A and networking section will follow so join us and find out how a multilinguist perceives language (and what language she dreams in!)

[JAT Book Translation (JATBOOK)]
JATBOOK offers three online seminars and two networking events per year.
For Spring JAT, we will be hosting two breakout rooms: fiction and nonfiction.
