About Together 2023

We are thrilled to invite you to Together 2023 event that will take place in Rome, on 23 & 24 February. This is the seventh edition of our ELIA Together event, featuring an immersive set of presentations and an innovative industry job fair which brings together language companies and freelancers to discuss the present and future of our trade. We will focus on the multiple aspects that characterise the ever-evolving world of localisation, the underlying technology that supports it, and the people who build and live within this fascinating industry.

PROGRAMME

The theme chosen for the seventh edition is CONNECTING THE DOTS! 

By putting its multiple stories in the spotlight through inquisitive presentations, networking and panel discussions, the conference will highlight the many layers that make localisation a unique industry. We will look at translation technology, peer into the lives of the people who build this fascinating industry and open a window to the new opportunities for growth in the market.

Track A – Once Upon a Time…

Let the world hear your story!

This track is dedicated to giving voice to the success stories that make our industry unique and the strategies to stand out as a professional in this business.

Track B – …Making Happy Ends Meet

Find your happy ending!

This track is dedicated to drawing lines between the different poles in our trade. Technology and humans, LSPs and Freelancers, hard and soft skills. A beautiful picture will emerge once you connect the dots.
