The Translation Conference creates a Gulf-based platform for translators, writers, teachers and communicators to discuss issues related to translation. The conference will function at both theoretical and practical levels.

Panels of top literary translators will discuss philosophies and strategies of translation in general. Groups of translators will meet in workshops with leading practitioners and educators to focus on various aspects of the craft in relation to Arabic-English and English-Arabic translation.

Some of the workshops include:

* Translation from English to Arabic: mismatches between classroom practices and market considerations.
* Decoding culturally based knowledge with locally used proverbs: an intersemiotic method for sociocultural contextual approach.
* Culture in translating and reading texts.
* Translation techniques in Quranic translation.
