Meeting Description: 

Translation Policy, Issues in the Strategic Management of Language 

Governments, intergovernmental organizations, institutions in the 
public and private sectors, and businesses operate increasingly in 
multilingual environments. These may be international, domestic, 
regional or local in scope. The need for the strategic management of 
comprehensive translation policies has emerged at the beginning of 
the 21st century as an imperative which can no longer be ignored as 
organizations devise and implement translation policies which are 
designed to meet the future needs of a wide variety of stakeholders. 
Those who are seen as trend-setters in this context have formulated 
strategies which communicate new directions through the statement of 
goals and objectives, policies and procedures, programs and plans all 
of which are designed to encourage adherence to the beliefs and values 
which support the very existence of translation policies within the 
framework of larger language policies.

This colloquium strives to provide a contextual background against 
which the translation policies of the 21st century will emerge no 
matter what the organizational situation. Reflections on issues, case 
analyses and theoretical approaches to these types of strategic 
planning are needed in order for government officials, civil society 
activists, business people and concerned citizens to engage in a 
positive manner in policy changes which are responsive to societal 
needs in the broadest sense of the term.

The colloquium will be held in both Paris at ISIT and in Montreal at 
McGill University in order to allow professionals, practitioners and 
researchers from both sides of the Atlantic to participate in a 
productive international debate.
