The QUALETRA Final Conference is the final activity of the QUALETRA project on training, assessment, certification and accreditation of legal translators in criminal proceedings. The consortium will present the results to all stakeholders and give the floor to external experts. The conference aims to bring together an EU-wide platform for the exchange of best practices and experience. This will lead to a stronger harmonization of training courses and an increased awareness of the issue of quality in legal translation in the Member States. After the conference, selected papers will be published in a special issue of JoSTrans (The Journal of Specialised Translation), and the deliverables will be posted on the EULITA website.
The QUALETRA project contributes towards facilitating transparent, cost-effective criminal proceedings in EU courts, guaranteeing the rights of suspected and accused persons as stipulated in Directive 2010/64/EU.
The conference is open to legal practitioners, legal translators, and their trainers. The registration fee is € 75. Registration is now closed. Please refer to the preliminary programme in pdf below.
