Hi all,

Are there any translators here based in Exeter, Devon or nearby regions who would be interested in meeting up for a coffee and a collegial chat?

I am a Swedish medical translator.

Looking forward to meeting you!
Send me a PM.

Kind regards,
Marie

Count me in Nov 13, 2013

Yes, I'd be interested. I'm not sure how many of us there are but it might be worth organising a powwow.

Good to hear, Lisa Simpson!
I am thinking about something more informal though...

Informal Nov 14, 2013

I'm very happy with informal. I think powwows are informal in that you pick the venue and make it as informal as you like but yes, they require some organising. I've never been to one but just suggested it as a means of possibly reaching a larger number of people since we appear to be the only ones so far.

Somerset too or just Devon? Nov 14, 2013

Hi.

I'm based near Taunton in Somerset, not too far from Exeter. I haven't been to a powwow for ages, the last one was probably Cardiff for me, but it's always enjoyable to meet up with colleagues.

Keep me informed if you organise something please.

Thanks,
Hilary

Collegial chats Nov 15, 2013

I have never been to a powwow, so I do not know what they are like. The intention of my post was not to arrange group meetings, but just an attempt to get in touch with some colleagues in the area.

Sounds good! Jan 15, 2014

I'm in Wellington, Somerset, and would also be interested in a local powwow.
