Hi all,

I wondered if anyone could tell me the main/best/most useful translator forums in the UK. I'm on a couple of forums in Spain which are very useful but was wondering which forums exist in the UK for translators.

Thanks in advance!

Belinda

CIOL / ITI May 30, 2012

Hi Belinda,

The forums I use most often are TransNet (run by the Translating Division of the Chartered Institute of Linguists – there's a general group that covers all kinds of translation-related issues plus language-specific groups) and the subject and language networks run by ITI.

You have to be a member of the relevant organisations, but I see you mention the CIOL in your profile so maybe that would be a good starting point.

Best wishes,
Karen

Thank you May 31, 2012

I had no idea there was a forum on ProZ... I did a search yesterday but obviously not the right type. Thank you. I'll also have a look on CIoL although I'm not actually a member at the moment.

So there are no public (as in non-association-related) forums?

Thank you both for your help.
B

ProZ is public May 31, 2012

This is a 'non-association' site. For most of the others I can think of there are stringent conditions regarding qualifications or membership of a professional association.
