PROJECT Kyoto 2015

Registration Closed. If you have any enquiries, please contact the registrar.

The PROfessional Japanese-English Conference on Translation (PROJECT), organized by the Japan Association of Translators, is a one-day conference covering all aspects of how to succeed in the translation industry. 

​PROJECT Kyoto 2015, the first PROJECT in four years, will be held at Kyoto Terrsa on October 3, 2015 with the theme of Honing your Craft.

We are planning a full day of workshops and interactive sessions that aim to give you a chance to put what you learn into practice, then and there.

This year JAT celebrates its 30th anniversary, and the Board are commemorating the milestone with a JAT 30th Anniversary Dinner Extravaganza, following PROJECT Kyoto 2015.  

PROJECT Fee: JAT members 6,000 yen, non-members 9,000 yen
Extravanganza Fee: JAT members 5,500 yen, non-members 6,500 yen

Both the event and dinner venues are within walking distance of JR Kyoto Station and the shinkansen. Although the events are timed to allow most to catch the last shinkansen back home, consider staying a night or two to network or see Kyoto. If you do plan to stay, we recommend that you reserve rooms now, because accommodation in Kyoto is almost always fully booked at this time of the year.  

We look forward to seeing you there.
