UETF 2018 is over—thanks for taking part!

Société française des traducteurs (SFT) would like to thank our remarkable speakers, our host BNP Paribas Fortis, and our energetic attendees for helping make UETF2018 a success. See you in 2020 for our 10th edition!

UETF is a unique training event, designed especially for translators who specialize in finance and business and who work with French and English.

Held every two years, it features:

  • talks by specialists from the world of finance and by top-tier translators, followed by Q&A to expand knowledge of the big picture and the details. There is no better way to acquire and fine-tune expertise in fundamental concepts, recent developments and hot topics for the future.
  • a hands-on workshop by language pair for practical experience, plus translation slams (new this year)
  • networking with fellow translators and experts to share ideas and strategies—plus upcoming projects, news of teams in search of talent, and more
  • for students and academics: a chance to observe translators at the premium end of the market first-hand—and, very possibly, adjust your take on professional translation.

Our 2018 themes ranged from macroeconomics to tax fraud, corporate governance, accounting, Brexit, new bourse products, more Brexit, energy issues, regulatory issues, sustainable finance and more.

We look forward to seeing you at SFT's next UETF in 2020. In the meantime, you'll want to check out our sister association Astti's summer school in Spiez, Switzerland, in summer 2019.
