German conference? May 21, 2007

Hi Rebekka,
just accidentally I saw this thread. I took part in the survey and made some suggestions there. I expected some kind of results or summary of this survey. Maybe I overlooked something. I'm afraid that many potential prospective participants (Help! Interessenten) overlooked the survey too. And that would really be a great pity.

Regards
Steffi
P.S. I'm willing to help e.g. with registration in the morning.

Programmvorschlag "PDF2Word" Jul 8, 2007

oder wie kriege ich einen editierbaren Text, wenn mir der Kunde nur Papier, gescante Seiten, geschützte oder auch ungeschützte PDF-Dateien bzw. ähliches schickt?

Dabei würde ich gerne den Weg vom Papier über Scaner zu einer OCR-Software (in diesem Falle Abbyy Finereader) besprechen und die möglichen Schwierigkeiten aufzeigen. Insbesondere möchte ich begründen, warum es häufig einfacher ist, den Text unformatiert zu speichern und den anschließend in Word neu zu formatieren.
Anschließend würden wir - mit einer zur Verfügung gestellten Datei - versuchen, die in Word auf Vordermann zu bringen, so dass sie nicht ur dem Kundentext ähnelt, aber sich auch problemlos mit einem beliebigen CAT-Werkzeug bearbeiten lässt.

Die Session sollte ca. 2 Stunden dauern - Laptops sind aber keine Notwendigkeit, da ich die Schritte nacheinander zeigen möchte.

Jerzy

Sessions for interpreters - call for speakers Jul 10, 2007

Dear All

At past conferences, there often were few or no sessions specifically aimed at interpreters. I would like to change this and run at least one or two sessions on interpreting-related subjects at future conferences. But I need your contributions to make this possible.

If you are thinking about attending one or more of the three autumn conferences and have an idea for a session on interpreting that you'd like to run in German or English I want to hear all about it! Please send me an e-mail with your suggestion and I'll give you access to a speaker form where you can fill in the details.

I would also like to hear your program suggestions for sessions on interpreting. Please enter those in this forum topic.

Best regards
Rebekka
