Proz.com is pleased to announce the
2012 ProZ.com International Conference
June 9th and 10th 2012
10 ATA points have been approved for this event!
Welcome to Barcelona!
ProZ.com and conference organizer Patricia de Gispert are very proud to announce the 1st Proz.com International Conference ever held in Spain, and it is an honour to be holding it in Barcelona.
The theme for the 2012 international conference is:
"The freelance translator as a professional CEO"
One goal of this event is to help freelance translators and interpreters to become efficient CEOs, in charge of their own little enterprise. Every company has different departments such as marketing, accountancy, human resources, etc. and freelancers, being on their own, need to show expertise in every one of these fields.
The conference will be held in the hotel Catalonia Plaza Catalunya, right in the center of the city and in in front of the famous avenue, las Ramblas de Barcelona. This hotel, formerly known as Hotel Duques de Bergara, is where the Proz.com regional conferences took place from 2008 to 2010.
Please beware that the program timetable is not final, hours and rooms may vary in the next few days. The program is now live here on ProZ.com - click here to access the program page or click the "Program" button on the left menu of this page.
The Conference fees include:
- Attendance to workshops and sessions on Saturday and Sunday
