Present a Joint Seminar on

“Translation Business Development”

Saturday, September 30, 2006 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Join us for panel discussions about the business of translation, designed for beginning and seasoned translators alike, as well as translation students. During the morning session, a panel of translation buyers representing translation agencies, the federal government and other clients will discuss what they want from their translators from the client/employer perspective.

In the afternoon, small business experts will explain what it takes to run a viable freelance business, how to organize and structure a business and how to plan your taxes. In our last panel, working translators will talk about their personal experiences breaking into the profession and give tips. Each session will include a question-and-answer period, and refreshments will be served.

Admission is free for NCATA members and for university students and faculty with a university ID. For non-NCATA members, admission is $25, which includes membership in NCATA through 2007. All attendees must pre-register by September 26 by e-mailing tobarm@comcast.net.
