KäTu2020 postponed until May 2021; KäTu2021 will be held 21–22 May 2021

Due to the coronavirus epidemic, we have decided to postpone the 2020 edition of the KäTu Symposium on Translation and Interpreting Studies. KäTu2021 will be held at the University of Helsinki in May 2021. We will send further information regarding the program and other matters at a later stage.

We are sorry about the inconvenience caused by this cancellation and sincerely hope that you will be able to participate in KäTu2021.


The KäTu2020 Symposium registration form has been closed.

Registration for all Symposium participants, including workshop participants, will be processed through this same form. You may register for the Symposium either individually or as a group.


Symposium participation fees (incl. VAT 24%):

Members of the Finnish Association of Translators and Interpreters (SKTL) €40

Non-members €80

PhD students €40

Other students €20

Please note that a service charge of €1.50 may be added to all of the above fees.

The fee covers the cost of the Symposium programme and materials, as well as scheduled coffee breaks on both days. Luncheon is at your own expense. On the Friday, following the Symposium proper, participants are invited to attend a reception hosted by the City of Helsinki. Participants are to register for the City Reception whilst registering for the Symposium itself.



Symposium registrants will be sent an invoice for the participation fee. When completing the registration form, you may request an invoice in either PDF format, as an email attachment, or an electronic bill. Please note that if you register as a group then you will also be issued one joint group invoice!

Those participants requesting an e-bill should kindly note: You must indicate on the registration form the e-billing address to which SKTL should send the Symposium invoice. In order to facilitate registration, participants requesting e-bills should make certain to have the following additional information ready when registering:  Broker ID; EDI (electronic data interchange) ID; business identity code of the billing entity; full address details. Please note that e-billing is an option available only to those participants from Finnish organisations.

If requested, SKTL may also issue a paper invoice, however, please note that this will also incur an additional billing fee of €20 (VAT 0%). If participants register as a group through one central form, then only one additional billing fee for the paper invoice will be incurred.

For questions related to billing issues, please contact SKTL via email at the following address: laskutus(at) For all other matters related to registration, please contact Aino Suoranta, Conference Secretary, via email at:  katu2020(at)
