COVID-19

As the global COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted all aspects of our life, the Centre for Translation & Interpreting Studies in Scotland has offered all events online since 2020. CTISS will continue to offer events online only until such a time we can recommence with face-to-face events.

At present, all CTISS events are only offered online through Zoom.
Wherever possible, all CTISS events are made through either BSL or International Sign interpreting or captions.
