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.

Tradulinguas International Legal Translation Conference, Lisbon

After a delightful evening meal at the library of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (the main conference venue), we reconvened early the next morning for another day of presentations, chat and lots of coffee. I felt that there was a perceptible shift on the second day towards the more practical, day-to-day aspects of translation and […]

ITI Sustainability in Translation conference – my experience: day 1

Having now recovered from last weekend’s ITI Conference ‘Sustainability in Translation’, at which I co-presented with Sarah Dillon, I’d like to share some of the key points I took away from it. At the conference I attended last November, I decided to ‘live tweet’ from the event. But this time somehow the mood just didn’t […]
