International Conference on Economic, Business, Financial and
Institutional Translation. 4th Edition

The era of cloud computing and fluid information, intensified the need
for economic, commercial, financial and institutional translation.
Multinational companies, international organizations and institutions
deliver multilingual contents through documents and localized versions
of websites and mobile applications, establishing a new market for
professional specialized translation. The process of communicating
contents has witnessed a great change and is hindered by the appearance
of new challenges, i.e. the emergence of localization, collaborative
translation work and automatic translation platforms, in addition to the
emergence of electronic and application commerce.
Translators and interpreters involved in this spectrum are left to deal
with those challenges and sort them out for themselves, and answer
questions like; how can information and communication technologies be
used to overcome substantial challenges such as the inter-cultural
aspects of specialized translation? How can we ensure that translations
provided in the abovementioned fields are of sufficient quality and
finesse? The Fourth International Conference on Economic, Business,
Financial and Institutional Translation (ICEBFIT) sheds light and deals
with these issues in addition to highlighting the importance of
translation programs. The dire need to train translators and
interpreters on those rising scopes bridges the gap between the academia
and the emerging markets through new academic courses that trains future
translators and interpreters to deal with those issues, carrying their
employability criteria as a priority, especially in the economic and
commercial fields.
Following three successful rounds held in 2014 at Alicante University,
in 2016 at Québec à Trois-Rivières University and in 2018 at Alicante
University, ICEBFIT IV will be held in the Campus of The French
University in Egypt in Cairo, for its 2020 round, organized by the
Faculty of Applied Languages. In addition to English, French and,
Spanish this round accepts papers in Arabic as a pivotal language to
open up an entire region; catering to the growing need to Arabic in the
international arena. The conference brings scholars, academics and
professionals interested in the fields of economic, commercial,
financial and institutional translation to meet to discuss topics
related to these fields, and promotes scientific research in those areas.
