New Challenges, New Solutions Oct 25, 2008

As the theme indicates, this Powwow will focus on everyday questions any freelancer may encounter.

It's about networking, effective marketing, building up a client base and even financial management.

All attendees wishing to have their ProZ ID verified please bring your photo ID (e.g. ID card, passport, etc.) and your ProZ number (the number at the end of your profile URL address).

More detailed information will come in the next few months.

About Time 关于聚会时间 Mar 11, 2009

The Powwow time is scheduled at 13:00 - 15:00, but it's only a suggested time. Since this is an informal meet-up, everyone may choose their own convenient arrival time during the meet-up time (i.e. I will be there waiting for you as early as 13:00). Previous Powwows showed that some attendees may arrive early but it took about an hour for all attendees to arrive. Of course you may also stay longer if you like.

聚会时间定在下午一点至三点,但这只是一个建议时间。因为是非正式聚会,大家根据自己的情况选择在此期间到达即可(即最早下午一点我会到达聚会地点等候大家)。根据以往聚会经验,有些会员可能提前到达,全部与会者到齐需要延迟一个小时左右。有些同仁愿意多聚一聚,当然也没问题。

个人看法 Mar 28, 2009

每人50大洋,可以好好吃一顿了。建议找个饭店聚一下吧,大家边吃边聊,不然,聚完后,还得找个地方吃饭,大家以为如何?

Tea House Reserved/茶楼已预订 Apr 5, 2009

With the help of one of my friends in Beijing, the tea house is reserved! I'll be there at 1 PM, doing some pre-powwow preparations and waiting for you all! If you have not confirmed attendance, please do so in the final week as it'll help me a lot.

Benefits of attending this Powwow:

1. Connecting with fellow translators/new friends and exchange information
2. Discovering how translators promote services and expand business
3. How to do financials for your own small business
4. Have your ProZ ID verified for free (Don't forget to bring your ID card/passport/other photo ID with you!!!)
5. Earn Browniz points if any (According to ProZ rule, attending a Powwow earns you Browniz points which you can use to get membership fee discounts, etc.)
6. .... There are a few more other benefits, but let me stop here ....

Finally, looking forward to seeing you all there!

在北京一位朋友的帮助下,茶楼成功预订!我会在聚会当天下午一点到场做一些准备工作,并等待大家的到来!如果您还未确认是否参加,请在最后一周决定吧,会对我帮助很大呀。;-)

参加此次聚会的好处:

1. 与翻译同仁/新朋友建立联系、交换信息
2. 探索翻译人如何推广服务、扩展业务
3. 如何做好个人小型业务的财务工作
4. 免费认证您的 ProZ ID(但千万记住要带上身份证/护照或其他带照片的身份证明!!!)
5. 挣得相应的 Browniz 分数(根据 ProZ 规则,参加 Powwow 可挣得 Browniz 分数,您可用此分数获得会员费折扣等。)
6. ... 好处还有很多,就不一一赘述啦 ...

最后,期待着与大家不见不散!

Small Venue Change/聚会地址的小小变化 Apr 9, 2009

The manager at the Hutongren Culture Hotel just suggested to me that since the weather is getting hotter each day, it is in our interest to use one of their other tea houses. Current location is not very well ventilated, while the new venue provides cooler and fresher air and is located just 15-minute walk away north from current location. There are no changes for decor, expenses and services. I apologize for the last-minute venue change, but it's their kind advice.

“胡同人”的经理刚才向我建议,由于天气渐热,原来的地点通风较差,因此希望我们能改用他们的另一间茶楼,新地点的空气较凉爽,空气也较好,距离现地点向北步行仅15分钟路程。环境、费用、服务均无变化。在聚会前更改地点实在不好意思,但这是他们的善意建议。;-)

No worries ;) Apr 15, 2009

@sofie08 The girl at the hotel was responsible for collecting the fees. But apparently she's not doing her job.
