It is with great sadness that the JAT Board and the Organizing Committee for IJET-31 have decided to cancel the International Japanese-English Translation Conference planned for Fukuoka on June 5–7, 2020.
The JAT Board wishes to acknowledge the immense amount of work done by the IJET-31 Organizing Committee to smoothly put together what promised to be an outstanding conference at short notice.
In recognition of their efforts and the quality of the proposed program, the JAT Board has asked the IJET-31 Organizing Committee to reschedule the 31st International Japanese-English Translation Conference to 2021 to a date to be announced. More information for registrants will be forthcoming soon.
The JAT Board has also asked the IJET-32 Toronto Organizing Committee to prepare to host IJET-32 in 2022. The date will be announced later.
Thank you for your support and encouragement, and we wish you and your loved ones all the best in these difficult times.
Ben Tompkins, Chair, IJET-31 Organizing Committee
Tony Atkinson, President, Japan Association of Translators
