Dear Wordfast users,

This forum topic will be used for all announcements related to Wordfast Forward 2017 (WFF or #wffvarna).

The latest announcement? The Call for Speakers is now open!

We hope that you might be interested in sharing your experience and know-how with everyone as a speaker...

The theme of the 2017 conference is Exchange, Compare, Build (not to be confused with the ECB or European Central Bank!):
  • Exchange best practices, know-how, and tips
  • Compare with others how you work today
  • Build new methods and relationships
Besides some new interactive round table and forum sessions in line with the theme, the conference will feature a gala dinner, farewell dinner, bowling tournament, post-conference running race, roof-top lunches, beach bungalow networking sessions, jazz piano-bar after parties and much, much more. You can already peruse the Networking and Travel & Lodging pages for more details.

Being a speaker is your chance to be a part of the official program and share your savoir-faire with colleagues. We asked past and future participants what they are interested in and the attached image shows the result.


We are also accepting sessions related to the following:
- Pandora's Box settings in Wordfast Classic or Anywhere
- Managing multi-party workflows with Wordfast
- Wordfast Server implementation
- Quality control, standardization
- Use of Wordfast for literary or academic translation
- Managing glossaries when using several different tools

If you have a proposal that is not related to the above, but you are convinced users will find your content constructive, by all means submit your proposal!

Please submit your proposal at the following link: http://www.wordfast.com/conference/2017/speakers

Speakers will be entitled to a 50% discount on the conference fee, priority room booking at the conference venue, and a few more surprise VIP perks. Speaking spots are limited and the deadline for submissions is January 9th.

We look forward to exchanging, comparing, and building know-how with you in Varna!
