Acquaintance with locals and expats Feb 21, 2016

Dear fellow prozians,

I look forward to meet you for an informal dinner in a nice water-front location in Valletta Waterfront on Wednesday before Easter, 23/03/2016, at 1 pm.
Bistro 516 also offers a selection of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes for any special requirements, or you can opt for a drink.

From here you can see some pics of our location: http://www.bistro516malta.com

Thanks for confirming attendance by Monday, 21 of March. I will then book seats in the restaurant.
Late joiners are welcome but seats won't be booked.


See you there!

Ciao Debora,

Io dovrei portare un'amica traduttrice. Intanto perché non aderisci tu?

A presto
Marco

Sorry...but Mar 4, 2016

I would have liked to meet Proz.com members but why choose the Easter weekend when most take the opportunity to go away for a long weekend or short break? Too late to cancel now. I will be away, sorry though I would have liked to come. Anyway, good luck.

Hi Josephine,
Thanks for pointing out location is Valletta Waterfront, instead of Sliema. Anyway, the attached map shows the restaurant's address.

I hope you can review your plans and join this powwow. I shifted the date to Wednesday, hoping you and other translators will find it easier to come, before leaving for Easter.
Actually, I cannot move it earlier as I won't be in Malta!

See you there (I hope!)

No sorry Mar 4, 2016

Hi Marco, no sorry, leaving just that day and I cannot cancel flight especially -I can cancel the hotels as booked with 'free cancellation'-besides the fact that I didn't have a holiday in summer and I hate Good Friday music-you cannot get away from it, so I make it a point to go away. Anyway, good for you for organising it there and good luck-will be there in spirit though. Enjoy Malta, lovely weather, beaches, places to visit, nightlife, people from all places and lots of languages spoken well too.

Why not! Mar 10, 2016

Hi Marco,
it's a great idea to organize a powwow during your Easter holidays in Malta.

Recently I started to consider Malta as a possible destination for my summer holidays: a very near country where to have the possibility to enjoy a beautiful sea and - in the while - study English for me and my sons. I had in mind a short visit to look for the right house and to understand if really Malta offers good English summer schools (for my sons and me)...

It seems a very cheap flight is available from Bologna in those days, I'll have a look and let you know ASAP.

So why not? We could follow up the interesting conversations about translation market started in Modena conference. Have you already sent a message to our colleagues in Malta?
And to Modena's conference participants?

Someone else could join us for a great Easter powwow!

Great idea, I try to organize a family trip, thank you!

Fabi

Valletta Waterfront Mar 15, 2016

Great idea. I have been campaigning here for real Professional interpreters for ages, so maybe we could come up with great ideas. I am fed up with those amateurs unprofessional people claiming to be able to ranslate into and from all the languages and then having to proofread illegible texts!
