UETF is back—for our 9th session

Société française des traducteurs (SFT) is delighted to announce its 9th summer school for financial translators/Université d’été de la traduction financière (UETF). This year we’ll be in Brussels from July 4-6.

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.

This year’s themes range from macroeconomics to tax fraud, corporate governance, accounting, investor relations, new bourse products, regulatory issues, private banking and more. We’re putting the final touches on the program now, so watch this space.

Our three-day event includes a welcome reception (free for all), a gala dinner (register separately), and two translation slams.

Stay tuned for updates. And for any and all questions, contact the UETF 2018 organizers at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
