What can you expect from the FIT World Congress?

The FIT World Congress is an international conference which brings together all those involved in the language sector: translators, interpreters and terminologists, students and teachers, newcomers and experienced professionals, product and service providers – all those for whom professional language services are a must.

Presentations, panel discussions and workshops

Vortrag im Hörsaal 2012

The presentations have a maximum duration of 30 minutes. In most cases, an opportunity for brief discussion is provided at the end of blocks comprising three or four presentations.

The panel discussions are timed for 90 minutes. Panel members and members of the audience exchange their ideas on current topics from professional practice. 

The workshops last 90 or 180 minutes, depending on the subject, and provide a more intensive examination of individual issues.

Would you like to submit an abstract? We look forward to receiving your suggestion.

 Trade exhibition  

 Fachkonferenz Fachmesse

The trade exhibition organized on two floors provides an overview of the tools and services available in the fields of translating, interpreting and terminology work.

Participants in the Congress have the opportunity to address their concerns, wishes and questions directly to the individual suppliers, who are as a rule represented by senior management personnel. 

Suppliers have the rare opportunity to meet the users of their products in person and receive practical suggestions.  

Would you like to present your products and services at the trade exhibition? Please contact us at info@fit2014.org.


 Job exchange  

 Stellenbörse 2012


The job exchange is a special service for the participants in the FIT World Congress.

In a separate exhibition section, potential employers or clients will introduce themselves to the translators, interpreters or terminologists. Newcomers can take their first steps into professional life, and experienced professionals can promote their skills and specializations.

Would you like to be represented at the job exchange? Please contact us at info@fit2014.org.
