In terms of the numbers of participants and of countries represented, this year's Congress, to be staged from August 2-7 in Shanghai, is by far the largest ever for the FIT (International Federation of Translators).

These academic Sub-forums will present such themes as the teaching of translation, interpretation research, literary translation, media translation, legal translation and many more.
