The 2020 virtual ALTA conference kicked off on the eve of International Translation Day, September 30, 2020, for two and a half weeks of daily events, culminating in a weekend of all-day programming on October 17-18, 2020. Though the conference is over, registration remains open, so that you may access the recordings of all ALTA43 events in Crowdcast, our virtual conference platform (click here for conference schedule).

We know that the COVID-19 health crisis has hit many people’s finances hard, and social isolation has been challenging for us all. Providing a space for our community to come together has rarely felt more important. With this in mind, and with the aim of making participation more feasible for more people, we made some changes to registration this year. We reduced rates, set our base registration at an at-cost price of $100, and introduced tiered pay-what-you-can options. For those who are not in a position to pay the at-cost price, there is the option of a $50 rate. Registration at the $200 price is open for those who are in a position to pay the usual in-person conference registration rate. A select few events were also free and open to the public.

One thing hasn’t changed: ALTA members still receive discounted registration. Become an ALTA member today for 10% off registration, the ability to propose 45- or 60-minute conference sessions, priority selection for the Annual Alexis Levitin Bilingual Reading Series, and other benefits. Read more and join here. And to the extent that you are able, please give to ensure that ALTA can continue its work.
