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.
