Egyptian Translators and Linguists' Association Aug 6, 2008

This is an actual group for translators and linguists in Egypt. They hold seminars on various subjects related to the translation field. As a previous poster mentioned, the email was sent to announce the beginning of a training course for Hebrew terminology used in tourism.

If the messages were coming directly from the Association, they would be sent from egytrans@googlegroups.com. However, since you mentioned that they are coming from a gmail account, it appears that someone is forwarding the messages to you. If you don't want to receive their messages, you might try writing to the email address and ask them to remove you from their mailing list. In any case, don't worry - its not a scam

I would not like to write to their email address,as I do not want and so I want to avoid taht they see that my e-mail address is a genuine,real,existing,so to say,verified one,and so they begin bombarding me with hoaxes and spam letters. That's my phoilosophy.

IMO some of the peers are rather rude. I suggest you also try the Hungarian Forum.
