Overcoming Challenges ● Creating Harmony

NZSTI is pleased to announce that the national conference will be held in Christchurch, New Zealand, on 16-17 September 2023. This year’s gathering promises to be an interesting and exciting in-person event, filled with delightful surprises and inspiring talks.

Under the theme Overcoming Challenges ● Creating Harmony, we will focus on the vital role translators and interpreters play in reconciling differences by exploring how culture shapes people’s views, values, behaviours and worries, as well as their hopes and dreams. Find out more here >

When booking your travel, note that the conference will end around 4.00 pm on Sunday. The finalised programme will show the exact time.

The story behind the logo

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.

Thanks also to Destina Munro for additional graphic design on the logo
