To all translators and interpreters in the London (UK) area:

Free e-business workshop on Writing for the Web

Organised by ITI-LRG -- the London Regional Group of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting.

This topic is relevant for marketing purposes, and also for the many amongst us who need to translate website content as part of our work.

Research shows that many thousands of pounds spent on an internet presence are often wasted because text is simply not 'user-friendly¹. Writing for the web is very different from writing for hard copy. This workshop covers:
- what writing for the web can achieve for a small business
- how people read online content differently to hard copy
- practical exercises
- seven steps to planning a website writing task.

This is a free workshop and will be held on

Tuesday, 24 January 2006 6.30pm to 8.30pm

London Metropolitan University, Moorgate Campus, Room MG1-17 (Upper Hall).
