METM16

This October, I attended METM16 in Tarragona, Spain. What a perfect time of year to visit my beloved Catalonia I thought, just as the weather turns bad in the UK! More on this below.

Where do all the translators go?

Last Saturday I attended the CIOL Centenary Members’ Day in London. This was my first CIOL Members’ Day, despite having been a member for about 7 years. There were lots of great speakers, but the two talks that attracted me most were Professor David Crystal HonFCIL on ‘Languages: Past, Present and Future’ and Michael Benis […]

Autumn CPD diary dates

It’s still only July and like many of you, by this stage of the year the extent of my forward planning goes about as far as fantasising about my much-needed summer holiday next week. Life post-holiday is quite low down on my priority list right now, but there have been a couple of events which […]
