Background information:

The aim of this two-yearly conference is to foster sustainable cooperation between translation and interpretation agencies on the one hand, and freelance translators and interpreters on the other. The conference also aims to further employability of (young) professionals and allow them to meet (new) clients. During the 2021 edition of the ‘Tolk-en Vertaalcongres’, amongst many other sessions, a Round Table discussion will be held on the steps towards a ‘covenant’ (cooperation agreement) between the Netherlands Association of Translation Companies and Dutch associations of independent translators. The covenant contains the core principles of business cooperation between translation service providers and their subcontractors (translators and revisers), and is entirely based on mutual consent. This initiative follows the example of the Hungarian Translation Industry Cooperation Agreement in 2013 and other parallel initiatives in Europe.
