In the age of the information society, the global economy focuses not only on production and distribution processes, but also on information and communication. Furthermore, it has taken a special interest in these processes in a context in which Information Technologies (IT) are being developed at great speed as one of the driving forces behind the economy in a globalized world. Against this background, translation plays an important role in these processes. The practice of economic, business, financial and institutional translation increases each day: institutions and agencies operate in more than one language; multinationals produce documents in different languages to expand their services all around the world; and large enterprises and SMEs also have to adopt a multilingual approach when accessing new markets in new countries.

Many translation and interpreting training centers, including the University of Alicante, are aware of the need for training in this area. This can be seen in their curricula, which include subjects such as specialized translation and economic or institutional translation. Trainers and researchers also seem to be more interested in knowing and researching the ins and outs of this type of translation: they study its relationship to terminology, new technologies, teaching, contrastive analysis and translation orders, etc. In this context, the Department of Translation and Interpretation of the University of Alicante seeks to bring together translation practitioners, researchers, teachers and other people interested in economic, commercial, financial and institutional translation in order to:

- Discuss new research trends in the field of economic, commercial, financial and institutional translation
- Discuss the study of translation assignments, resources, textual genres, IT and their relationship to economics and business
- Gain first-hand knowledge about business translation from professionals
- Discuss the evolution of business languages and its impact on translation
- Reflect on the gap between the professional and academic worlds
