|6th ProZ.com Conference - Ohrid 2009|
Ohrid - Macedonia (FYROM)
Jul 2, 2009
- Organizer: Hristina Dojčinova
|I can't believe I'm back already! Had a wonderful time in Ohrid, words fall short. I am in awe of Hristina for all her efforts to make sure things went as smoothly as possible, and for her tireless willingness to help everyone whenever they needed it. And an otherworldly, infinite patience. How do you do it?? |
It was so great to meet everyone, the sessions were interesting and the social events surpassed my expectations. Hope to see everyone again soon!
|I think conferences and powwowows are the best excuse to get out of the office nowadays. I had a great time and I loved being part of a great community in person. |
Thank you Hristina, you sure did a great job there and I hope to see you all on a next event like this!
|Let's do it again next week! The atmosphere was absolutely great! It was my birthday present and I feel absolutely happy about it! The sessions were really interesting and useful and we also had great fun!|
Well done, Hristina! Everybody who took part in the organization of the event must feel really proud. Perhaps I should also say “Thank you, Henry, for choosing Ohrid for celebrating ProZ.com 10th Anniversary”. There were so many people who didn’t know a thing about the Balkans and about Macedonia in particular and I believe that this event helped them understand us better. I am Bulgarian and I feel really happy that so many colleagues visited our part of the world and I hope that now they love it as much as we do.
|Ohrid...Ohrid! If I only could be freed... Sure!I would go back there again... the point is knowing when?|
Speaking seriously now, once again a Proz conference... at it's best! So I'm very pleased w/ all our Proz organizers & brothers who made this useful & friendly (Macedonians 1st. class sympathy!) translated oriented commemoration a 3 day success! Congratulations to Hristina, Anne & off course Big Chief Henry at his 10 th. birthday commemoration.
|Dear Henry, Hristina, Anne and many many others...|
Thank you for making such a special event in our country and made people come to Ohrid from all over the world.
It's great to "feel" the translation community and to see in personally the people with whom we are speaking only via skype or emails, not knowing in person...it's great to make new contacts and lot of friendships...hoping that we will meet again soon...
And, yes, "Let's do it again next week!". Why not? :)
|To repeat Alison's comment, I am also very grateful to Hristina and Anne for all their efforts to make sure things went so smoothly (Macedonian timing excepted!), and the tireless willingness to help everyone whenever they needed it, with infinite patience.|
Ohrid was a great venue, the presentations excellent and it was a pleasure to celebrate with Henry and his team Proz's 10th Anniversary. My goodness what amazing parties Hristina organised!
What a wonderful experience it was to meet so many nationalities and learn a little of their cultures, problems and hopes for the future.
|Bravo Hristina, Anne, Henry and everyone else who made this possible! It was a lovely venue and the networking was exceptional. Not only did we learn a lot but we also had (too) much fun.|
Looking forward to many more ProZ.com events that live up to the same standards.
|It was my first international conference and if I could rate it, it would definitely be an A+. I'll make sure to inform the Croatian ProZians about this magnificent event. Thank you all, especially Hristina and Anne - you did an enormous job and you did it well!|
|Thank you, especially to Hristina and Anne for their tireless work and patience but also to everyone who gave their time and expertise so generously to this amazing community.|
This was my 4th International conference and this one undoubtedly rose to the occasion for the 10th anniversary celebrations.
I confess to having been sceptical about it due to the relative inaccessibility of Ohrid but the attendance of about 170 proved me wrong and it was a pleasure to meet colleagues from the Balkans and Central Europe (with a truly humbling proficiency in my language) and the friendly people of Ohrid as well as a great opportunity to see the beautiful area of southern Macedonia.
In addition to eating too much, drinking slightly more than is good for me and not getting as much sleep as I should, I also learnt some useful tips, both from presenters and colleagues.
|It's very simple: as a result of the Macedonian experience, I decided to participate in all of the forthcoming conferenes in Europe.|
A thousand thanks to Hristina, Anne and all those who managed to organize this great event!
|Congratulations and many many thanks to Hristina, Anne & Co. It was a huge success!|
I've had plenty of time to think about the event on my way home, but I couldn't find a single thing to complain about - except that I would have loved to stay for a couple of days (weeks, months?) more.
Girls, you did a great job and you can be proud of you! Not only have I learned a lot of useful things, but I have also had so much fun that I am now eager to come back to meet my colleagues down there again and see more of their beautiful countries. Many many thanks to you for having made this possible!
|Great!, brilliant!, superb, I run out of superlatives to qualify this event. Had a wonderful time. Lectures were most interesting and swimming in that lake was unforgettable. Bravo and thanks to all who have made this Conference such a success.|
|I think this conference would not have been such a great success if it had taken place in another country! Ohrid makes people feel relaxed and at the same time full of energy! It was a great opportunity to make contacts and finally exchange experience in person.|
Thank you Henry for celebrating Proz's10th birthday here and congratulations to everyone involved in ithe organization and support.
Hope to see you all soon!
|I also want to add my name to the list of those who want to thank Hristina, Anne, Henry and all others for this great event. It was so great! I met such interesting, nice, intelligent people that I can hardly wait until the next conference to attend. Nights were so short; conversations so great; speaches so interesting; the place so nice...|
Thank you to anybody who made this become true: Both organizers and attendees!
See you at the next conference!
|It was my first international conference and it was superb. . Thank you all, especially Hristina and Anne - you did an enormous job and you did it well! It was a lovely experience and the networking was exceptional. Not only did we learn a lot but we also had (too) much fun. Thank you.|
|I have just came back to my new home and impressions from my first Proz conference are still very strong. I thank the organizer Hristina, Proz staff and all of you for making this memorable experience possible. I will never have that anxiety when coming to a Proz conference anymore because I met so many interesting, nice and inspiring colleagues. Wish to meet you all again wherever whenever! |
Keep in touch,
|Many thanks to all of you, who made this wonderful event possible. You did a great job! I enjoyed every minute of it, and I am already eagerly planning my next conference. Hopefully in Nice… :)|

|Thank you very much Hristina and Anne for organising this conference. It was a real plesure to visit beautiful Ohrid and meet all the translator collegues. Many thanks Hristina for finding us a nice flat at an affordable price for the two days we stayed in Ohrid after the conference. Filip was very hospitable and friendly. We definitely want to come back some time!|
Harald & Beatriz
|Wish to repeat everyone's greetings and superlatives made to praise Hiristina an Ann for great job done. Being on Proz conference for the first time we really learnt a lot and enjoyed every second of being in Macedonia. Thanks and hope to meet again.|
Efrat & Erez
|Thank you Hristina, Anne and all the people involved in organizing this excellent international conference. Your efforts are much appreciated.|
|Thank you Hristina and Anne for such hard work and making this highly international event work smoothly. Ohrid is no doubt a Macedonian pearl and was an excellent choice for the venue of the conference. I was happy to meet interesting colleagues, hopefully we will keep in touch!! Thanks again!! Caridad|
|In a nutshell: SUPER! Thanks to the best organizers for all they did to us, all the time with a great smile on their faces! Thanks to all the nice participants who made this Conference a big event!Great Conference, great time! Hope to see you all again very soon!|
|Thank you proz team, Hristina, Anne, Attila, speakers, colleagues. Everything was positive in this Conference. The place, the people, the sessions and especially the warm and friendly environment made it an UNFORGETTABLE event. Hope to see you again some time in the future!|
|Thank you, Hristina and Anne. It was my first conference and it was great - although, my journey back was somewhat adventurous :) - a reservation in a non-existent sleeping wagon, a train 6 hours delayed in Serbia, so I missed my last train from Budapest to Slovakia by 5 minutes... then chasing after another delayed train to Hungarian borders... if you want adventures, travel by train.|
I am sorry about not writing to any of you until now - I came home to find total chaos in the house, my parents were replacing the floor... I was lucky to escape the worst of it during the conference. My father appreciates the Macedonian “book” that I’ve brought him – I think he will start to “learn the language” soon :) Once again, thank you.
