I'm looking for a short translation/interpreting related course/conference/event to attend at the beginning of January 2009, to tie in with a visit home. Does anybody know if there's anything interesting going on? Thanks!

Other web sources? Nov 7, 2008

Thanks for your reply Lia, but I didn't find anything much related to our business through that link. I guess it's going to be difficult to find something going on in the UK at the beginning of January. Everyone will be trying to recover from the festive seasonicon_wink.gif. However, if anyone can suggest other similar web sites that offer an e-mail alert system for courses/conferences being held in the UK that would be great.

ICE Nov 7, 2008

There's the International Calendar of Events (despite the name, this is translation-related) here:
http://www.iti.org.uk/ice/index.asp

Don't know about alerts - it might have a RSS facility, you'll have to investigate it yourself.

You're right, there doesn't seem to be much going on in January; though some courses at (I think) Westminster are starting then.

Perhaps for tax purposes you could make sure you visit the British Library and photocopy something work-related while you're there?icon_smile.gif

Thanks Angela Dec 2, 2008

Thanks for the ICE link Angela. I will keep that for future reference. I didn't find anything suitable for January but I'm sure I can organise something for later on in the year. I must try to be more organised ....I will put it in my list of New Year's resolutions. It gets longer by the dayicon_smile.gif
