JIAMCATT is the "International Annual Meeting on Computer-Assisted Translation and Terminology". It was established as a IAMLADP task force and provides its participants with a forum for debate, exchange of expertise and cooperation in the fields of computer-assisted terminology and translation, interpretation and documentation retrieval.
JIAMCATT membership includes most international organizations, as well as various national institutions and academic bodies, active in the field of terminology and translation. All IAMLADP member organizations are ex officio members of JIAMCATT. For more details, consult the membership and participation policy.
Participants come together for an annual plenary meeting and exchange relevant information and linguistic data via a dedicated website. Interest groups on specific topics (e.g. terminology, standards, the use of CAT tools, etc.) use online forums, e-mail and surveys to collect and share information. The annual JIAMCATT meeting is complemented by JIAMCATT local meetings that bring together participants from a specific region.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the JIAMCATT plenary meeting 2020 that was scheduled to be hosted by the IMO in London was cancelled. JIAMCATT organised an online meeting on 15 and 16 April to ensure that the interchanges among the JIAMCATT Community can continue despite the health crisis. For the links to the programme of this session, copies of the presentations and links to recordings go to the JIAMCATT website.
The JIAMCATT 2021 meeting will be held virtually during the week of 19-23 April 2021. It will in particular cover the topics machine translation and post-editing, collaborative and/or cloud-based CAT tools and platforms and provide updates on language technology projects from JIAMCATT member organisations and academia.
