Vilnius Gathering Sep 27, 2010

Dear colleagues,

It's already two years that there were no meetings of translators and interpreters in Lithuania. Isn't it time to party again? I believe it is. Moreover, later this week there will be the International Translation Day. Unfortunately it is Wednesday which is not a very good time for gathering even taking into consideration that most of us are freelancers. So, let's come together on Saturday, 2 October.





Place:
Chillout Baras (former Cia Baras, Pylimo g. 8) + colleague's private quarters

Time: from 5 pm - till 8 pm (bar) + from 9 pm - till 'who knows?' (private quarters)

Languages: Russian, Lithuanian, English

What is on agenda except friendly hugs and chatting:


At the cafe:
- Being a VAT payer in Lithuania - it is not so painful.** (An English > Russian translator Aleksandr Vasiljev will share his experience of living on the financial side of European street.)
- First-hand experience with various TM CAT tools: which ones we use (if any) and why we prefer them.
- Verification of ProZ.com members. (A good chance to become a verified member.)***

At the private quarters:
Warm atmosphere among your friends and colleagues with some drinking, talking and lots of wonderful music...



Bonus for foreign guests: a good walk around the city and sightseeing tour. For example on Sunday we can visit a unique KGB Museum which is located in the premises of a real former KGB prison:

 


Accommodation for those coming from other places:
I have 4 sleeping berths and thus can accommodate 4 people at my own apartment. Of course my apartment is not a 5-star hotel but it's bearable. If there are other colleagues from Vilnius who can accommodate people please let me know.


So, guys everybody is invited (including representatives of translation agencies). Those who will come please register in this thread (or contact me privately to do that).


If you've got any questions please don't hesitate to contact me via email or Skype (preferable). My mobile phone: +370 (687) 49 194.

Hope to see you soon in Vilnius.

NK

 ** Aleksandr will be speaking mainly in Russian with some comments in Lithuanian or English if necessary.

*** In order to be verified you should present your identity document having a photograph.

Regarding partying Sep 27, 2010

Nikita, what a grand idea. Long time no see.

But do you REALLY think that the official part with speeches about thye VAT and CAT tools is a must?
Somehow, on a Saturday afternoon... Oh well.

Absolutely not, Diana. I just thought that these topics could be of interest for some of us to speak about. But they are not a must: we can discuss anything we want. Generally I don't think we should have a so called 'official part' at all... Let's consider it as a meeting of people with some common interests.

For the moment there are 8 people registered for the event and 2 are still thinking (5 of them are not ProZ members yet).

To Stanislaw Kulikowski Sep 28, 2010

Czescz Stanislaw,

It's a pity you can't come. You would be the only foreign guest (at least so far). I'm afraid it would be difficult for us to move the event two weeks forward. Perhaps it's possible to change something in your schedule?

Question Sep 29, 2010

Hi, everybody. Any chance of moving the event? I am leaving abroad EXACTLY for those dates.

If not, maybe a chance to record the presentations/discussions and share them with those Proz members who could not attend? The topics of discussion sounded very interesting. At least the audio recording would be a great benefit.

In the future it would be good to plan such events beforehand, at least a few weeks prior.

Thank you in advance.

Vitalijus

Aaah... Sep 29, 2010

Just this past Monday I was sighing how much I miss Lithuania and my life I had there (ok, don't ask why I'm not there - Viespaties keliai nezinomi...)

Pity I'm too far and the event is so soon, no way to manage.

Nikita - since you mentioned your "not 5* hotel", please take a note of my contact in case you need a berth in Lisbon, whatever time. Actually, everyone is welcome: no luxury, just basics, but for young people sometimes that helps.

And now - just greetings from a very sunny and warm Lisbon..! Have fun all on Saturday.

Inga

It's a pity you won't be able to come but unfortunately it's impossible to move the event now.

Well, I'm afraid it's not possible either as it requires good recording equipment that we don't have.

To Diana BB: Diana, you see - people are interested in the declared topics for discussion.

You are absolutely right Vitalijus, it's my fault. Sorry. Next time I will certainly take that into consideration.

Labas Inga,

Thanks a lot for your invitation: One day I would love to avail myself of the offering moreover that Porto is one of my favourite drinks...

So you can console yourself at least with that kind of weather as in Vilnius today it is gloomy and cold...
