MET & APTIC welcome all Barcelona-based MET members (and those visiting the city) to another season of Translator Meetings, monthly get-togethers open to all language professionals interested in informal networking, socializing and meeting new people.
The get-togethers will take place every first Wednesday of the month (except in May) at the lovely Café Salambo (www.cafesalambo.com) in Gràcia. A cross between a classic café and a bar, it is spacious, not too loud, friendly and offers a wide choice of beverages and snacks at good prices. We think it will make for an excellent venue!
The dates for the spring 2013 season are: February 6, March 6, April 3, May 15 and June 5.
We will continue with our series of “mini-talks”, informal talks about a variety of topics related to the world of translation/language services given by anyone interested in presenting. Talks are about 10 minutes in length and can serve as an introduction to a subsequent group discussion. They are meant to be informal and given from a personal perspective. Last year we had talks about the changes to the IVA/IRPF and a presentation on an interesting, technical translation project.
In February, our mini-talk topic is “The translator abroad: living and working in a foreign country.” Since many MET members fall into this category, we would be interested in having one of you talk about your experience. Please get in touch if you would like to present this topic or have any ideas for future talks!
Two other news items:
Although organized by MET and APTIC, we would like to open up the get-togethers to all language professionals, regardless of whether they are members of either association or not. As a result, the get-togethers will now simply be called Translator Meetings – Encuentros de traductores.
Finally, we are looking for another Barcelona-based MET member to join the organizing committee. The time commitment is minimal and most of the planning work involves nice people and a glass of wine (or whatever your libation of choice may be). Please get in touch if you’re interested!
WHEN: February 6 at 7pm
WHERE: Café Salambó, Carrer Torrijos 51, 08012 Barcelona (Gràcia)
