The workshop is being organized on Friday 1 February 2013, 1.45 for 2 pm – 5.30 pm, by the London Regional Group of the ITI (Institute of Translation and Interpreting). Following previous workshops this is another opportunity to work on EU texts with John Evans, Language Liaison officer at the EU Commission in London.
John will cover French, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish, and Ann Pattison will be facilitating the German group. There will also be information on tendering for EU freelance work and staff options as a translator or interpreter and some background to the in-house tools used by translators in DGT. Europe House has a first-class conference room with full PA/AV facilities; catering will be by Plum Duff. Tea/coffee and light refreshments will be served.
NOTE: numbers will be strictly limited to 40. This is sure to be a popular event so early booking is advised. This event qualifies for 3 hours’ CPD.
