Conference news

A UTIC-style New Year Gift

When the cold days arrive in Ukraine and the winter holidays approach, we look back at some milestone events.

Five years ago, InText Translation Company decided to make a difference in the Ukrainian translation industry by organizing a new international conference that would bring together academia and business, translators and clients, software developers and users. We called it UTIC — the Ukrainian Translation Industry Conference — and it was a success. The first conference took place in 2013, and was followed by another one just one year later.

Introducing the UTIC-2016 interpreters team

UTIC is a conference that aims to bring together people from across the translation industry, irrespective of country of residence, profession or beliefs. And although most of our participants have an excellent knowledge of English, Russian and Ukrainian, we provide translation of the vast majority of the presentations every year.

After each UTIC conference, recordings of the presentations and round tables are processed by montage experts and posted on our YouTube channel. These videos in several languages attract large numbers of views, thereby spreading useful information and new knowledge far beyond Ukraine.

UTIC® trademark is registered

Dear friends,
We are excited to share our good news with you. More than a year ago, we submitted an application to the Ukrainian Institute of Industrial property, and today we are the proud owners of a UTIC trademark certificate.
These officially sealed pages are not just a title of protection for us. As it is gaining international recognition amazingly fast, the "birdie" is becoming much more than a simple trademark. It seems as if it is like what David Ogilvy meant by saying that a trademark has "the property that is hard to put into words. Call it a personality, character, aura, the atmosphere, the fifth dimension – whatever you like...".
Whatever you like – because hundreds of our friends would call it differently. However, they will agree that UTIC is a friendly embrace of greetings and hundreds of supportive hands. It is a "conference con anima", as it was wisely noticed by Tetyana Struk, a member of the UTIC 2014 Program Committee.

Happy International Translation Day!

Dear Colleagues!

We would like to congratulate all representatives of the translation industry, translators and interpeters, proofreaders and reviewers, representatives of language solution providers, UTIC attendees on the International Translation Day!

Wishing you success and professional growth! Keep up the good work!
