Attendance by non-agencies Sep 19, 2010

The agency event will not be restricted per se to those profiles that select agency or freelance & outsourcer account types. That said, the content, networking and information presented is designed to benefit those either working in an agency setting, agency owners, or freelancers looking to move in to agency activities.

Looking forward to "seeing" you at the event

Drew

What about a conference for "freelancers & outsourcers at the same time"? Sep 20, 2010

For both parties this would be pretty beneficial. Why not for a virtual conference where the main goal is to establish a networking environment where outsourcers can meet freelancers?

Last year at the virtual conference I saw that many many freelancers were trying to advertise themselves in the conference forums, but I must confess it didn't look professional. So there is a demand for it.

Hello KSL,

In order to download the content of your virtual briefcase from the Freelance Translator Virtual Conference, simply visit the virtual conference page and click on "download your virtual environment briefcase until December 30th, 2010 »", this will launch the virtual environment.

Once in the environment, click on the small briefcase shown at the bottom of the main page, a window will pop-up allowing you to download your briefcase content.

Just make sure you are accessing the virtual environment using one of the following browsers: Internet Explorer 6.0, Firefox 3.0 or 3.6, or Safari 3.1.

Please, give this a try and let me know how it goes.

Kind regards,

Lucia
