Apply to be a speaker / Call for papers

Do you have something interesting and relevant to teach to your fellow translators?  

Are you an expert in a specific field? 

Would you like to speak to an enthusiastic and fun international audience?

We are constantly looking for new speakers to present at the next BP Translation Conference or one of our online events.

 

BP21 and other events

 

In all probability, BP21 Translation Conference will take place online.  Submit your proposal(s) for our flagship annual event.

We’re also considering other online events — either a 2-day event focusing on a specialization or a 3-day translation conference in a language other than English.


 

Tips for future BP speakers

Come up with a subject that’s practical, something that can be applied by professional freelance translators shortly after the event. 

Have a look at subjects at previous events on our Videos page.

We’ll provide some more detailed guidance for selected speakers.

 

Compensation

We pay a certain amount to our speakers to compensate them for the time preparing and delivering their presentations.  This amount depends on the duration of the session (i.e. for workshops we pay more), and the number of tickets sold.

Selected speakers will receive more details — or feel free to contact us any time.

 

Tell us what you need
