8) 13th Languages & the Media Conference and Exhibition
When: Sep 20 – 24, 2021
The conference and exhibition will once again bring together leading academic experts and key industry stakeholders for a packed programme that will focus on the latest trends and technologies in the world of media localisation and access services under the overall theme “Riding the Wave”. Language tools are being integrated and experimentation and reinvention abound. The need for research has never been greater. With the validity of older norms and standards under scrutiny, new models of good practice are emerging, forcing the audiovisual localisation industry to take stock and re-examine audience needs. Legislation and regulation are also whipping up the wind of change. As our 2018 keynote speaker David Padmore pointed out, our shared goal is to break down language and sensory barriers to audiovisual content that educates, informs and entertains the world. To achieve this, all stakeholders must come together and collaborate to address our industry’s challenges with responsible, comprehensive and fair strategies.
