Conference and Events

For over forty years, the ALTA conference has provided the largest gathering dedicated exclusively to the work of literary translation. Each year, around 500 ALTA members, literary translators, writers, students, readers, teachers, publishers, and other professionals from all regions of the United States and abroad gather for a vibrant three days in continually changing venues across the country, and, occasionally, in Canada and Mexico. We hope to see you at the next conference!

Since 2020, ALTA's programming has expanded to include virtual events. We are proud to connect the literary translation community around the world! Below, please find information about our virtual event options (click the links to read more), as well as our archive of past event recordings.
