Pictures about FITCongress2017

Take home a piece of Oz Land - eco dyed scarves as gifts for keynote speakers, my contribution to #fitcongress2017 #translators #interpreters insta topsy.oneThis month, our Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) team, joined delegates at the International Federation of Translators World Congress (FIT) in #Brisbane. 
The Congress brought together a mix of interpreters, translators, language service providers, industry stakeholders and academics to discuss and debate the theme of the congress: disruption and diversification. 
TIS National staff showcased their interpreting services, learnt about global trends and issues, and discussed recruitment opportunities with interpreters.
