Can anyone direct me to a website or journal that advertises upcoming CPD courses for translators? Courses such as the 'Translating Popular Culture' MA just mentioned by City, or seminars on translating software, for example.

I've just been looking for courses on the City website and elsewhere, but you have to search for the specific subject you are interested in, and you have to know that the City website exists. It would be nice to find a place where you can just stumble across interesting courses/course providers, too. Maybe there's even a place like this on Proz that I just can't find? (I spotted the Proz courses, but can't see any others.)

Thanks to both of you for the links.

That ITI one is especially good, as you can even search by country and type of event.

If you're looking for a formal qualification there are lists by country on the Lexicool website. The one for Germany, for example, is here: http://www.lexicool.com/courses_germany.asp
