Dear fellow translators, editors and linguists,

It is with pleasure that the Translators Association of Catalonia (APTIC) and the International Medical Translators Association (Tremédica) invite you to attend their first joint Scientific and Professional Symposium on Medical Translation, which will be held in Barcelona on September 20th, 21st and 22nd and which is being organized in collaboration with IDEC-Universitat Pompeu Fabra.

We would appreciate if you could distribute this information among the members of your professional association.

Comprehensive information may be found here: http://www.aptic.cat/tradmed2012

SESSIONS, SCHEDULE AND LANGUAGE

All sessions will be in Spanish and practical cases will deal with the EN-ES pair. However, some of the sessions will focus on topics such as drug development and veterinary translation, which are universal to most language pairs.

For the complete schedule with abstracts and speaker information, please refer to: http://www.aptic.cat/noticia/jornadas-cientificas-y-profesionales-de-traduccion-medica#resumenesybios

REGISTRATION AND VENUE

Registration is now open until August 31st. For fees and registration conditions, please refer to the official website (http://www.aptic.cat/tradmed2012).

Attendees will be awarded 10 Continued Education (CE) points by the American Translators Association (ATA).

In addition, all attendees will be given a 20% discount for purchasing the Spanish Royal Academy of Medicine’s Diccionario de términos médicos, published by Editorial Panamericana (http://dtme.ranm.es/index.aspx).
Sessions will be held at IDEC’s main conference hall — Balmes 132-134, Barcelona, Spain. http://www.idec.upf.edu/espais/es/auditorio.htm

ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AND NETWORKING

All attendees will be invited to join the welcoming reception on the evening of the opening day, which will be held at the venue. In addition, there will be an official dinner (at an additional cost) held at an open-air venue, taking advantage of Barcelona’s pleasant late-summer weather.

We encourage all translators —including not only those who specialize in medicine— to join us in this very interesting event, which is also the perfect excuse to network with colleagues and spend a summer weekend on the shores of the Mediterranean.

For more information, you may refer to the official website (http://www.aptic.cat/tradmed2012) or write the organizers at Barcelona2012@tremedica.org. You may also call us at +34 932 92 86 59.
We look forward to welcoming you in Barcelona!
