A virtual translation conference is a virtual event for translators and other professionals in the language industry.

The first virtual translation conference was held on September 30, 2009, International Translation Day. It was a twelve-hour event, organized and hosted by ProZ.com, using the Unisfair platform as the virtual environment. The focus of the conference was improving knowledge of different aspects of the translation trade and networking.

As with many virtual events, the virtual translation conference remains open for registrants to continue viewing the available material and recorded presentations, and for networking.

Over 6,800 attendees participated in the virtual conference, which was provided free of charge. It was reported as the largest gathering of translation professionals in history to date.
