Dear members,

The last event for 2010 took place this past weekend, on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and I would like to take a moment to review this year's events, and thank all of the hard-working organizers who prepared them, and all the professionals who spoke at and attended these events.

Events were held in the following cities this year:

Montevideo, Uruguay
Cairo, Egypt
São Paulo, Brazil
Prague, Czech Republic
Santiago de Chile
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Barcelona, Spain
Paris, France

Three virtual events and one virtual companion to an in-person event were held:
The second virtual conference for freelance translators
The virtual conference for translation agencies
The virtual conference for translation consumers
The virtual companion to the 2010 conference in France

There were also over 200 powwows held around the world.

Thanks to everyone who participated in making these events happen: organizers, speakers, attendees and sponsors!

A full listing of past events can be seen at

2011 in events will continue offering both the in-person and virtual, with new features and event types, and marked value for members.

For 2011, you can expect more in-person events, each with their "virtual companion"; a virtual component for the event where participants can view sessions and material, and interact with the speakers and in-person attendees for those events.

Mark your calendars for the virtual event for freelancers, which will be held once again on September 30th, International Translation Day.

The "virtual companions" and the virtual event for freelancers will be free to all members, and available for a fee to non-members.

In addition, look for more virtual event activity, more often. Plans include:

regularly-held focus groups, with topics submitted and voted on by members,
virtual powwows, and
virtual workshops on specific fields or topics, in various languages.

These virtual events will compliment the benefits of in-person events such as conferences, seminars and powwows for both in-person and virtual attendees.

As these events are set, you will be able to view them at and . Events will also be shown on the events calendar, at

Best regards,

Thanks for including more virtual events in 2011! As I live in India, some of the in-person events are held quite far away and require a lot of advance planning, so it's good to be able to attend events onlineicon_smile.gif

Thanks to and the event organisers for all the efforts being made in this area.
