Our get-togethers are back! Jot down these dates in your calendar and join us.
Wednesday 3 May
Wednesday 7 June
Our meetings are about sharing ideas and experiences, building connections with other language professionals, catching up with colleagues and making new contacts, getting away from our desks and having fun with like-minded professionals who share our passion for translation.

The get-togethers organized by MET and APTIC have been going strong for five years and are one of Barcelona’s most popular informal networking events for language professionals.

The meetings are open to all language professionals, members and non-members alike. Among other things, we want our get-togethers to provide newcomers with a chance to discover what our associations are all about.

If you have ideas for future meetings (new venues, activities, mini-talks) please get in touch with Aisha Prigann (aishaprigann@gmail.com). We would love to hear your thoughts and recommendations.

May Meeting

Our next MET-APTIC meeting is just around the corner! Come celebrate spring and catch up with colleagues at the lovely Bar Glaciar terrace on Plaça Reial. To liven up the conversation, we thought it would be nice if everyone brought something to talk about: the experience of working in a translation team and revising each other's work, healthy habits for people who work at a computer all day or the books you gave/received on Sant Jordi. Let's share experiences and insights; that's what these meetings are all about!

April Meeting

In April, we celebrated Sant Jordi, the Catalan day of love and literature, with festive book swap at the gorgeous Bar Glaciar on Plaça Reial in Barcelona.

1 March 2017

Our season opener took us back to an old favorite: the CAT Tradicionàrius bar in Gràcia, Barcelona. The venue also hosts a Wednesday night concert series, Les Vespres dels dimecres, so we all enjoyed some live folk music after our meeting.


25 November 2016

The last MET-APTIC meeting of 2016 was a resounding success. Thirty-five language professionals attended the talk by Alicia Martorell, who provided an insightful and entertaining look at how IT technology has changed our profession since the early 1980s.
This was followed by a lively group discussion on the pros and cons of translating in the digital age.
Many stayed on for a festive networking dinner at the lovely Teatreneu in Gràcia (Barcelona) to celebrate the success of these joint events, which have been going strong for five years. Plans are under way for the spring season, and the organizers welcome any ideas for talks, activities and new venues.

First MET-APTIC outing

In September 2016, MET and APTIC teamed up to offer their members an exceptional opportunity to learn about wine, enjoy a day in the country and network with colleagues. This special edition of our MET-APTIC Meetings took us to beautiful Barberà de la Conca where we explored the vineyards, talked about translating for the wine industry, visited a historic “wine cathedral” and got to know the next generation of local winemakers. And enjoyed some excellent wine, of course! Given the positive feedback we received from members of both associations, we hope to organize a second edition in the near future.
