Any experience of Powwows? Jan 17, 2005

hi there everybody

I'm new to this like everyone else in this area of the country it appears, can anyone suggest what we do at a Powwow since I've never actually been on one? I mean do we have a list of things we talk about or...........? We're spoilt for choice with venues in Bristol I think, Watershed, Boston Tea Party spring to mind.

Regards

Mihailolja

Any experience of Powwows? Jan 17, 2005

Hi Mihailolja. Have you read the FAQ sheet about Powwows? I suggest that all those who are interested in attending this one make suggestions as to what they would like to get out of it. Also suggest there is a deadline for such suggestions to allow speakers/who/whatever to be arranged. If only a few people want to come, then it might be more of an opportunity to get to know other translators rather than have a formal affair with seminars, etc.

Hoping to move to Bath in a few weeks.

Regards

Lisa

thanks for the ideas Jan 17, 2005

hi Lisa

thanks for the comments and ideas Lisa, I'll definitely read the faq. I'm really waiting to see how many people are interested before we decide what we will actually do.i.e have a speaker and seminar type thing or an informal "gathering"

regards

Informal Jan 24, 2005

Since there hasn't been a powow in this area before - I would prefer a more informal opportunity to meet other professionals from around Bath & Bristol (+ anyone else who wants to come, of course!).

Informal Jan 27, 2005

I live outside Bournemouth, and am really interested in a local network of translators, that could meet informally and online and help each other
with workrelated issues.
If others feel the same, perhaps it could happen.

Good to see this amount of interest Jan 27, 2005

Hello all

Would be great if you could come Anette , all the way from Bournemouth too! I'm more and more convinced Translators in this part of the UK do need to meet up.

Shame Jan 27, 2005

Since sining up, I have learnt that a) I will be moving to Bristol, but also b) that I cannot make it on the Whitsun weekend. Shame. Have fun.

Existing translators' and interpreters' group in Bristol and Bath Jan 27, 2005

Hi, I hope I'm not breaking any rules if I tell you that there is already a group for translators' and interpreters' meeting regularly in the Bristol area - see: http://www.itiwrg.org.uk/

We're meeting in a pub in Bristol this Saturday - please email me or contact the people named on the website if you're interested in coming. A Proz.com powwow will be something else, so I think it's good for that to happen too, but it would be a pity to duplicate a group that already exists.

Date Jan 27, 2005

15th May is very provisional and will no doubt change for either a week earlier or later, what would suit you Expat?

existing group Jan 27, 2005

Hi Jane

I'm sure you're not breaking any rules by telling us of the existing group, I personally wont be able to make it but appreciate your info. I'm just so busy with our 2 kids and our recent house move that even one Powow as far of as May is the most I can achieve. Thanks again.

Organizing a powwow Feb 8, 2005

Hi Mihailolja
I'm sure you will have no problem at all organizing a powwow - it's really easy! I have attended two and organized one myself and they were all great. I think the first powwow in the area should indeed be informal, as Sebastian and Anette said. I can't say with any certainty if I will make it or not but I do hope so!

Love the title Feb 26, 2005

Kids welcome! Great, because I have 2 of them and my attendance will very much depend on a) the availability of babysitter and b) the venue! Good to see I'm not the only one here.
