Dear Translators,

I just looked at the figure provided for the 2012 international conference in Barcelona and was surprised to see that states that 503 translators attended the conference. I am curious as to how this number was calculated.

Can anyone tell me the basis of the figure?

I did not attend, but did attend a few of the social gatherings. From what I heard, and from the number of registrations prior to the conference my guess is nearer 160 than 500.

Thanks in advance!

You are quite right Jun 18, 2012

Dear Helen,

I attended almost every presentation selected and all the social gatherings but one.My estimate is similar to yours.Probably some people expressed interest but finally they did not attend.That's the explanation I have. See the picture at!/Tranforum?bookmark_t=page
All the best
