Conference programme
We are very pleased that many experienced speakers representing freelancers, professional associations, universities and technology providers will be participating in the 13th International Legal Forum.

We are particularly delighted that we will be able to welcome two judges
(Regine Förger, judge at Koblenz Regional Court, and Joachim Lüblinghoff,
Vice-President of the German Judges Federation and judge at Hamm Higher Regional Court) and two heads of unit at EU directorates-general for translation (Saša Sirovec from the Croatian Language Department at the European Commission and Michael Fuchs from the German Translation Unit at the European Parliament).

On Friday morning the presentations will focus on interpreting for courts,
the police and authorities as well as the relevant requirements for
appropriate training. The afternoon will be devoted to the highly topical
and very controversial subject of video interpreting. After three talks
dealing with practices, research and technology, 5 to 6 experts at the round table will consider various aspects of this brand-new technology and look forward to lively discussions with the audience and feedback from the
attendees' own experience.

Presentations on Saturday morning will concentrate on digitalisation and
machine translation, while the afternoon will revolve around the latest
developments and proven practices in legal translation and interpreting.
