10 reasons to attend the 7th ProZ.com international conference in Prague

The ProZ.com 7th international conference will be taking place this year in Prague, Czech Republic, from October 1st to 4th. How quick do you think investing the amount of the conference fee in professional development will pay back if you learn at least one trick from colleagues that will help increase your efficiency by even as little as 5%?

Perhaps you can get your money back even faster by meeting potential business partners who might give you a translation project within 1 week after the conference just because they now know you in person.

Are you sure you want to miss this chance? Are you sure attending the conference can never be a win situation for you? If you are still in doubt, here are ten more reasons why attending the event will not be a loss:

1. It is the biggest gathering of professional translators and interpreters from the ProZ.com community this year;

2. It is a highly powerful socializing and networking opportunity. You will be able to step from virtual to reality, to meet the people behind the profiles, to give away and collect business cards, to meet potential new clients and partners and to share tips and information with colleagues;

3. You will learn about new tools to increase productivity, terminology management, interpretation, EN certification, transcreation, dealing with feedback from clients, why you should charge per hour and much more!

4. You will also learn about how to better understand your clients, build a stronger relationship with them, and enpower collaboration and negotiation through a better communication;

5. The even features the the theme of the state and future of the translation profession and how translators can achieve the prestige and recognition they deserve. Don't miss the opening session on 'the Future of the Translation Profession" and the closing session "The Future of Our Profession: What to do - accept, adapt or choose another occupation...";

6. You will learn all about Translation Office 3000 from Vitaly Pedchenko himself, deputy managing director at Advanced International Translations.

7. There are 2 training sessions framing the conference. Learn all about SDL Trados Studio 2009 or get started with voice recognition software. More info here.

8. There will be a cruise gala dinner on Saturday evening - yet another great networking opportunity! You are also invited to the 2 powwows: the pre-conference powwow on Friday to break the ice and the closing party on Sunday.

9. The conference is a great excuse to get away from the office, travel, and visit or rediscover beautiful Prague, one of Europe's jewels.

10. It's also a great excuse to just celebrate, have fun with colleagues and make new friends!
