UTICamp-2020 Program Committee Begins its Work
Everything must be planned right down to the tiniest detail — the venue, the schedule, etc. — to make the conference a success.
The work begins many months before the event and does not finish until the conference is over. Finding interesting speakers is an important part of the preparations.
From the very first UTIC-2013 conference, passionate, talented professionals with many years of experience and a good understanding of the translation industry have helped us to draw up the program and select applications.
As a result, the UTIC days have been filled with informative presentations, useful workshops, and fun interactive games. The previous conferences have set a high level of program quality, so you will not be bored next year!
Our friends are getting down to work. The UTICamp-2020 program committee has nearly been formed and today we would like to introduce you to the first members of the committee. We will announce the other committee members later.
Many of you know them from the previous UTICamp conferences, online groups or collaborative projects. If you do not know someone, please click on the names to learn more about the professionals who will provide valuable inputs to the program of the upcoming conference.

We wanted to make it more informative and less formal, so that the translators who came here could take back with them some useful practical knowledge that they can put into practice at home tomorrow.
Founder, owner and CEO (Interlex Language Services)For anyone who thinks I have been exaggerating, name one other conference where you can: listen to top quality presentations sitting on a bean bag in a pine forest, with simultaneous interpretation from a pop-up booth in a tent; enjoy lectures while chickens run around the lecture theatre and children play games outside; skip a session and go for a swim in the river; follow the closing ceremony with all the attendees taking part in one massive drum band… It is all about UTICamp, of course!

A lead auditor for International Standards Organization 17100, a certified translation services providerUTICamp by far is the most comfortable conference I attended over the past 15 years! A great and one-of-a-kind location that hosts some of the best speakers in the world in the translation industry. I can only say that UTICamp is translators' paradise on earth, where they can acquire a lot of knowledge in a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. A lot of fun and expertise awaits you there!
Freelance InterpreterUTICamp is a great occasion to set aside your computer or leave your interpretation booth and meet colleagues in a different setting. Morning yoga on a river bank, a day spent in professional exchanges and an evening by the fire with a guitar – I believe this is an ideal recipe for a summer open-air conference.
