2014 workshops


The first workshops for 2014 will be held in Madrid on February 21. On the day there will also be a free ‘MET Medley’ session – an open event with presentations and discussions pertinent to the fields of translation to English and English editing in Spain. Past MET Medley presentations have dealt with software, terminology and other language issues, revising, and more.

There will also be an opportunity to join the workshop facilitators and other members of MET for lunch in the break between the morning and afternoon workshops.

To register, use the MET workshops registration form. If you are a current MET member, please log in before registering. Members are also welcome to sign up for an informal evening get-together, details to be announced soon (go to separate sign-up form*).
