We all know that translation conferences are great events for learning, sharing information, meeting new colleagues and partners and also for having fun. If you have been busy with projects in the first few months of this year and haven’t had the chance to plan ahead, this is a good opportunity to boost up your calendar with conferences and other language industry events you wish to attend in 2019.
International Translation Day was first established by the International Federation of Translators. The date, September 30th was chosen, because it is also the feast day of St. Jerome, patron saint of translators, who was the first person to translate the Bible into Latin.
ITD is also a celebration. The celebration of every professional who help making the world a smaller place. One form of this celebration would be joining a translation-related event held near your residence or even online.
tekom Magyarország held its first, translation-themed mini-conference on international translation day (30th of September). Our Technology Officer, Krisztián Sinkó introduced Language Experts Group's translation workflow and then Miklós Urbán (from Kilgray Translation Technologies) presented MemoQ.
