BP24 Translation Conference :: Training and networking event for freelance translators :: CPD for translators

Freelance translators’ favourite event

Every year since 2014, translators from around the world come together at BP Translation Conferences to learn about the Business and Practice of their freelancing business. Interpreters, LSP representatives, and other language professionals also join us.

Hands-on presentations

Conference sessions and workshops offer practical training, with plenty of actionable tips that our attendees can easily implement in their own business as soon as the event is over. 

Active international community

In addition to the countless professional connections, hundreds of new friendships also formed between attendees over the past 10 years.  This extensive network, now spreading to over 70 countries in the world, is a valuable source of professional referrals.

Seville as a host city of BP24

Every year since 2014, our conferences took place in a different city around Europe.  Very few other cities in Europe boast such a diverse cultural history as Seville in Spain.

BP = Business & Practice

Roughly half of all sessions at BP Translation Conferences cover a business aspect of freelance translation, while the rest falls into the broad category of ‘practice’.

‘Practice’ sessions cover productivity tools, CAT tools, all the heavy stuff.   As a counterweight,  some sessions talk about ‘soft skills’ and life-work balance.

All sessions provide practical, actionable tips that attendees can implement right after returning home after the event.
