WIDE RANGE OF SPEAKERS FOR IAPTI BUENOS AIRES 2017
We’ve put together an incredible roster of more than 30 speakers for IAPTI’s 2017 international meeting in the worldwide Association’s home town of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In addition to our renowned keynote and closing speakers, Carol Saller, Chicago Manual of Style Editor and author of The Subversive Copy Editor, and Erik Hansson, creator of Things Translators Never Say, we are proud to have accepted the proposals of a truly distinguished line-up of translation and interpreting professionals who will speak on topics of specific interest to the wide range of translators and interpreters attending the event on April 22 and 23 at the Hotel Claridge in downtown Buenos Aires.

Here’s a preview of some of the subjects that will be covered during this exciting two-day event: taking the free-lance to employee plunge, working with direct clients, quality management in translation, interpreting informalities, CAT tools for T&I professionals, ergonomics in the office, translation analysis, a look at IAPTI’s African Initiative, acting tips to improve interpreting skills, interpreting diplomatic discourse, translator risk management, engagement in literary translation, medical interpretation, terminology management in group translating, online education, technological challenges, interpreter confidentiality, plain language, taboo language, free-lance partnerships, and much more.

We look forward to sharing in this extraordinary two-day event with all of you. Sign up now to get early bird rates on both the conference and lodging.
See you in Buenos Aires!

Invoicing Feb 22

Hi Radost,

Some time ago I posted a question in IAPTI's LinkedIn forum, but I have not received a reply:

Due to IAPTI’s pending registration and lacking tax number, there have been concerns about participants putting down the conference fee as business expense. How have these concerns been addressed?


The same issue was raised by Catherine Howard here on ProZ early January:

Catherine Howard wrote:

One way or the other, keep in mind what IAPTI’s board says in its reply, that its registration with the government is still not finalized, so it does “not have signed ledgers and other formalities of governmental oversight and auditing." This means that, until it is authorized as a legal entity, it does not report to its tax authorities or have a tax number to provide on its receipts. So you may want to consult your accountant about whether you’re allowed to put down any fees paid to IAPTI (such as membership or conference fees) as business expenses in your own income tax returns. Some countries mandate that such expenses can be deducted only if receipts from another entity have a tax ID indicating it is reporting income to its own government.


Could you or IAPTI's competent authorities chip in, please?

Attila,

IAPTI is an approved civil association as of today, hence fully registered and approved. IAPTI will address this and other conference-related matters directly with each attendee.

Regards,

Lorena Vicente
