NZSTI Conference 2022
30-31 July 2022 (NZ time)
TE KOA O NGĀ REO | THE JOY OF LANGUAGE
Times are tough. Let’s focus on the joy we find in language. Language connects us all, and we language professionals are lucky to have it as our bread and butter. Let’s explore the joy of using, experiencing and working with language in its myriad shapes and forms.
Under the theme TE KOA O NGĀ REO | THE JOY OF LANGUAGE, the NZSTI Conference 2022 brings together professional translators and interpreters, industry stakeholders, educators, academics and students to discuss what it means to work with language, how language impacts our daily lives and how we can best use language.

The story behind the logo
The joy of language develops like ripples in the water. The moment we hear the first words in our native language is the stone that breaks the water's surface. This is where our journey starts. We take small steps, moving from basic babbling to more advanced communication. For some, reading a fantastic book can have such a ripple effect; for others it might be learning a new language. Everyone’s language journey is different, but we all have one thing in common: the stone that sets it in motion.
