The Brazilian Language Industry Association (BLISS), Brazil’s first association of language companies, was established in 2021 with the primary goal of fostering and preserving a robust association while championing the language industry on a national and global scale. By reinforcing the representation of the Brazilian market, it seeks to amplify its influence and expand its reach. BLISS is committed to catalyzing, advocating, and advancing initiatives designed to bridge the gap between language service providers, the industry workforce, and academia. The association actively disseminates knowledge on cutting-edge language service support technologies and strives to elevate our industry’s recognition. This initiative aims to ensure that both national and multinational corporations can confidently engage in acquiring language services, such as translation, localization, interpretation, proofreading, and content creation, in Brazil.
On Aug. 25th and 26th, 2023, BLISS will be hosting its first conference. The chosen theme for the first edition of the conference is: “Unindo Forças: Inovação, Estratégia e Colaboração no Setor Linguístico” (Joining Forces: Innovation, Strategy and Collaboration in the Language Sector). This will be the first event of its kind organized by a Brazilian association. We will have two days of valuable insights and learning about the language industry, led by renowned professionals from the field.
