Greetings, Translators! We’re thrilled to announce that the application period for TED Translator Passes to TED2018 is now open. The gathering will run from April 10 to 14, 2018, in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. The TED Translator Pass covers the conference fee, and travel and accommodation expenses. Please note that you must be a TED Translator with at least one set of published subtitles in order to be eligible for a pass. The application deadline is December 22, 2017, and you can apply here.
TED2018’s theme? The Age of Amazement—which we think more than accurately describes our present era. As politics, globalization, technology, the future of work and even what it means to be human are all continually reinvented before our eyes, it’s time for us to take a collective breath and assess and prepare for the momentous shifts ahead. To that end, TED2018 will go all-out to bring you visibility into the key developments driving our future—from jaw-dropping AI to glorious new forms of creativity to courageous advocates of radical social change. We’ll include critics and skeptics, as well as the quiet heroes advancing novel ideas we can rally around. And through it all, we’ll seek exciting and insightful ways forward. We hope you’ll join us!
