The first translation festival of its kind in Singapore, TranslateSingapore offers a thought-provoking and stimulating line-up of programmes this November!

TranslateSingapore
is anchored by the Singapore Translation Symposium. This year, we will convene a day of talks and panel discussions by prominent speakers who will explore the challenges facing translation in the 21st century. We will cap the Symposium with a Roundtable discussion, as stakeholders from the public, corporate and community sectors give their perspectives on the Singapore translation industry.
