28th-30th June 2019

The Japan Association of Translators (JAT) will hold its 30th International Japanese-English Translation Conference (IJET-30), its flagship professional-development-and-networking event, in Cairns, Far North Queensland, Australia on June 28-30, 2019.

This year, our theme is Life, Style, and Translation ― ことばを繋ぎ、未来を紡ぐ.

The Japan Association of Translators (JAT) was founded in 1985 to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas among translators working between Japanese and English, and to establish and maintain professional standards in the industry. Membership is limited to individuals who are engaged in, or interested in, translation or interpretation.

The International Japanese-English Translation (IJET) Conference is JAT’s flagship professional development and networking event. First held in 1990, this annual two-day conference brings translators and interpreters together to network, share their experience and expertise, and further develop their professional skills. With the venue alternating between Japan and an English-speaking country each year, IJET has been held in locations throughout Japan and around the globe.
