Hello everybody !

there are 9 ProZ. Regional Conferences taking place all over the world in the next months, the first one will be in Polen next week.

Has anybody already attended a ProZ. conference ?

I thought it will be great to share our experiences on the Student Forum, I am really looking forward to know how conferences look like on the other side of the world !!

I will begin by telling my experience...

I had the chance to attend two Regional Conferences last year, the ones in Aix-en-Provence (France) and Dortmund (Germany). I had a really good time there and what I also enjoyed was that when I came back, I had the feeling I had changed. Even if they lasted two or three days I had the impression they had gone on for ages: they were actually very intensive because there were sessions all day and we had our meals together too, which was an excellent opportunity for networking.

I met translators from different countries and it was amazing to listen to their life stories (no one of them had just lived in only one country !). I could also get clearer ideas about my future professional orientation by talking to translators coming from a wide range of professional backgrounds.

So, when I came back home I felt like I had travelled around different countries in just two days ! Did you already have this kind of feeling ?

I am really looking forward to read your comments,

see you soon on the Forum and perhaps one day by a conference !

Hey marta!

It must be really nice to get to attend a conference in Europe, where people from different countries (therefore different backgrounds - and languages!) get together.

I am planning on attending the Uruguay conference in August this year (if any of the studentZ here are interested as well, it would be lovely to meet you face to face!!), adjusting some minor details such as how I'm going to get there in the first place, where I'm staying, who I'm going with, etc. But I am mostly certain I will attend.

If you have the opportunity please come! Uruguay is a beautiful country and the Conference seems to be very well organized!

CheerZ,
Aldana.-

Hi Aldana ! Mar 19, 2008

Unfortunately I don´t think I can be in Uruguay in August...it´s a bit far away and I don´t speak a word of Spanish...but...never say never !

I am sure you will enjoy the conference ! I would be glad to know about it !
