Roaring about legal translators!

press-releaseYou may remember in September, when I announced the conference #W2D2017 Legal Translation to the Next Level… I said:

Let’s make this a roaring success, and roar to the world out there that legal translators exist, and are a force to be reckoned with!“.

As you know, there are now only 12 days to go.

I have prepared a press release, and would like to enlist your help to make the world more aware of our profession through this event. It can be downloaded by clicking here for a PDF, and here for Microsoft Word format.

Please share it liberally, in every language you can!

Thank you in advance, and hope to see you there!
