The Beyond Limits theme aims to reflect on expanding the limits of public service translation and interpreting. We live in a globalized world dominated by English, though also in constant contact with less widely used languages. We are witnessing a relentless advance in technology applied to translation and interpreting, but also need linguistic and cultural intermediaries in common areas of conflict and migration. We demand the recognition of the professions of the translator and interpreter while their performance is, in fact, very frequently fused. The training of the translator/interpreter is proposed by universities, but its collaboration with other industry language professionals is required. There is an increase in the number of institutional relationships in education, but greater collaboration with companies is required. We are aware of the increase of multilingualism and cultural diversity, and we need to redefine the concept of translation competence. We are, therefore, in times of change and aware that we need to overcome limits and assimilate fast advances; we, thus, need to sum up and not subtract.
