This contest is open to anyone with less than total three years’ experience as a professional translator. JAT membership not required. Previous entrants (except winners) are welcome to enter again.
Where will you be on June 5 to 7, 2020? If you’re a translator, interpreter, language-oriented company employee, or otherwise involved in the translation and interpreting professions, we hope you’ll join the Japan Association of Translators (JAT) to learn, network, build your skillset, and exchange ideas at the 31st International Japanese-English Translation (IJET) Conference in Fukuoka, Japan. IJET will take place in Elgala Hall in the Tenjin area of central Fukuoka.
Seeking to encourage talented people to enter the translation field, JAT is pleased to announce its sixteenth annual Japanese <> English translation contest for new and aspiring translators. The actual passage to be translated is a real-life text—the sort of thing a working commercial translator might well be called upon to do.
We are pleased to announce the results of the 2019 JAT election.
A big thank you to this year’s candidates and to everyone who voted.
Congratulations and best of luck in the coming two years to the elected Directors and Auditor, who are to be approved by the membership at the OGM.
