FIT (Fédération Internationale des Traducteurs/International Federation of Translators) is the association of associations, the professional body representing associations of translators, interpreters and terminologists across the world. Over 120 professional associations and training institutions are affiliated to FIT, representing more than 80,000 practitioners in 60 countries. The goal of the Federation is to promote professionalism in the disciplines it represents; it constantly seeks to improve conditions for the profession everywhere, and to uphold translators’, interpreters’ and terminologists’ rights and freedom of expression.
Every three years, FIT invites the industry to an international congress. The Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators (AUSIT) is hosting the FIT Congress in Brisbane, Queensland as the organiser of the XXIst FIT World Congress, scheduled for 3-5 August 2017.
The FIT2017 Organising Committee extend their warm welcome to our subtropical city, and look forward to being your hosts.
