Welcome, Yvonne! Feb 2, 2005

Dear Yvonne,

Welcome! But I need to tell you one thing: Please do not put your lowest rate less than USD 0.05, because it is not right for others. The international rates are different than we are used to in Taiwan. For instance, I never take any projects less than USD 0.08 per source word. We need to maintain a market order and let the translation agencies know that we are confident of our quality.

Thank you!

Cheers,
Wenjer (Beni)

Some more people will come and join us. Feb 5, 2005

There are some more people contacted me. They intend to join in. Probably, we will have more than 20 freelancers who would like to be members of the Association. Let's find some more to establish an effective and efficient network of cooperation in the sense of helping each other when translating texts we might not be familiar with.

Keep on, folks, and please notify your friends to join in! Thank you!

Cheers,
Wenjer (Beni)

Location where the Meeting is to be held Mar 24, 2005

Dear friends,

Though I am not quite sure now where the Meeting is to be held, I would like to offer a possible conference room at Howard International House Taipei, 30, Sec. 3, Xinsheng South Road, 106 Taipei.

I am still working on fund raising for the Meeting. If we are going to have more than 30 persons, we would need only NT$ 800 plus 10% surcharges per person for the Meeting, including the lunch, that is, when we are going to have a full day meeting from 8:30 to 17:00, because a half day meeting would not save much money.

Anyone who can help with fund raising and other jobs for the Meeting please contact me before April 15, 2005.

Thank you!

Cheers,
Wenjer (Beni)

Special Thanks to Anne Apr 16, 2005

Dear friends,

We need some ideas for the topics at the meeting. If you have any ideas, please send me a note for the agenda which will be made public one week before the Meeting.

Special thanks to Anne's offer for her assistance in doing the report. Anyone is welcome to take pictures at the meeting for the report.

Many thanks to all who have been providing ideas and assistance. I am pretty sure that we will have a fruitful meeting. Thanks to you all.

About the location Apr 17, 2005

Dear friends,

The nearest metro station to the place where we are going to meet is Zhongxia-Xinsheng Station. It might take 5 to 10 minutes walk northward under a bridge to the venue, but no more than 10 minutes. Some people may like to take a bus to the place. It is only one stop northward from the Metro Station Zhongxiao-Xinsheng. Any bus in that direction may do.

Because of the capacity of the venue, I need to have an idea of the number of the participants. Please do confirm your attendance.

Cheers,
Wenjer (Beni)

P.S. To Peter: Two persons are noted. Thanks for your confirmation. The cost won't be more than NTD 250 for lunch. Maybe much less, because there will be a discount of 20% to 40% for us.

Can't see the report May 17, 2005

As the author of the "report" on this meeting, I would very much like to be able to view it and to be assured that others are able to do so. Where is it?! Mark Rawson

Can't see the report still May 20, 2005

wenjer,

I think you better:

1. Try upload the report again, see if we can see it this time.

2. Mail to the MIS of ProZ, tell her/him about the missing uploaded report. Maybe the missing is due to the system's deficiency.

best regards,
stone

The Report Uploaded Again May 20, 2005

Now, I suppose, there was something wrong with the uploading and again I tried just a few minute ago.

As to the pictures, I found out that each of them are over 256KB and that could be the problem with the last uploading. If anyone wishes to have the pictures, please just let me know.

Cheers,
Wenjer
