The inaugural Singapore International Translation Symposium 2013, held on 1-2 February 2013, was the first major public translation-related event to be held in Singapore.
The main objective of this symposium is to raise awareness about the role of translation in society, take stock of the current state of the translation industry and market, and exchange experiences and best practices with translators and translation organisations in other parts of the world.
The event was held over two days from 1-2 February, featuring prominent speakers like Max Lane (Australia); John McGlynn (Lontar Foundation, Indonesia); T. Sasitharan (Intercultural Theatre Institute, Singapore); Jeremy Tiang (Singapore); and Huang Jing Rui (84000). Topics include “Translation of National Literatures”; “Emerging Translation Models”; “State of Translation Market”; and “Interculturalism versus Multiculturalism”.
