Hello, London-based translators,

I will be in London for one week as of 26 February and I would welcome the opportunity to get together with a few of my fellow translators for discussion over tea or beers.

I welcome any interest, via either this thread or a private e-mail to me through proz.com.

What about organizing a powwow? Feb 16, 2011

Dear Robert,

The scenario you describe seems like an excellent opportunity for a powwow. This get-together you are planning fits in the description of a ProZ.com powwow http://www.proz.com/powwows/

The powwow interface will make the organization easier as you will be able to keep track of messages sent to you and of possible attendance.

This video http://www.proz.com/videos/tutorials%20on%20proz.com/406 provides more information about the role of the organizer and you can find more information here http://www.proz.com/faq/proz_com_events.html#powwows


Best regards,

Romina

@Romina Feb 16, 2011

Thanks for the suggestion, Romina. I have just submitted my "proposal" for a Powwow.

To anyone interested: I had to select a single date for the proposed "Powwow" but this date could be changed if needed.

I am hardly expecting massive interest in such a gathering. I'd be agreeably surprised if more than 3 or 4 people show interest.
