15-17 October 2020


The annual Mediterranean Editors and Translators Meeting (METM), now in its 16th year, is an established CPD and networking event – a highlight in the calendar for many editors, translators, interpreters and other providers of English-language support services in the Mediterranean area and beyond. It offers one and a half days of presentations and keynote speeches, two half days of pre-conference workshops, and a programme of “Off-METM” events.

In 2020, our meeting will be held in Donostia/San Sebastián, a well-connected city located in the Basque Country, in northern Spain. Once famed as a sophisticated summer residence during the Belle Époque, today it is a modern and vibrant city known for its urban beaches, surrounding natural beauty and cutting-edge gastronomy.

The METM20 venue will be the Olarain University Hall of Residence, a modern, quirky venue located in the city's university area. Olarain has some on-site accommodation and is within walking distance of the town centre and the Ondarreta and La Concha beaches.


Registration will open in late spring and be reserved for members only during the first week. MET will accept no new members during that week.

Venue address

Olarain University Hall of Residence, Paseo de Ondarreta, 24, 20018 Donostia/San Sebastián, Spain
