Registration and Discounts

We've kept our registration at the same rates as our 2019 conference (our last full in-person conference before the pandemic). The earlier you buy, the cheaper the registration! Become an ALTA member today for 20% off registration, the ability to propose panels and roundtables, free pitch sessions with translation publishers, and other benefits. Read more and join here

For those seeking conference funding from an institution, please note that roundtable participation has equivalent status to presenting on an ALTA panel, and should be considered of equal merit.

And to the extent that you are able, please give to ensure that ALTA can continue its work. Your donations make it possible for us to offer complimentary registration options through our lottery and work exchange program (see below).
