 | 19th Annual MATI Conference 

The 19th Annual MATI Conference was held on Saturday, September 24 in Milwaukee, WI. Over 60 people attended our first in-person meeting in three years. It was a great day of learning and reconnecting with colleagues. For those of you who were able to attend,  you should now have received your conference attendance certificates via email. Conference handouts and surveys will soon follow. The full program and speaker bios are still available on the conference page. Please contact the MATI Board with any questions.

A big thank you also goes to our wonderful sponsors: Argo Translations, Terra Translations, Metaphrasis, CCHI, UIUC TIS Program, and SWITS.
