An Eclectic Translators’ Community

Spending time with fellow translators never feels like work. And Saturday was one of those quality-time events with my wonderful colleagues from the Bristol-Bath area.

The ITI WRG’s (a regional group of professional translators) Members’ Day was a half day of networking and knowledge-sharing, included several 5-minute presentations by some of our members on a variety of topics that may not seem immediately relevant to translation, but which show how eclectic our specialisms are, as well as how our personal interests can play a part in and support our work. For example, we heard about the principles of permaculture, eco-linguistics, hydrogen, language teaching to babies, and much more.

We also had a portfolio area where we could show examples of our work and I was pleased to contribute some of the art books I have translated over the years.

I look forward to our next year’s Members’ Day already!
