(12) ProZ.com Inter-Industry Conference, Birmingham, UK, April 2010
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

MT, TMS, IT, CAT, DTP... where is the linguist?

This is the question featured by the ProZ.com Inter-Industry conference that will take place in Birmingham, United Kingdom, in April 2010, at Spring Hill College.

The event aims to bring together individuals and companies involved in the translation industry. The conference promises to be a true meeting of minds from the world of IT, publication, as well as various key industries and major translation organizations and bodies in the UK, representing unique networking opportunities.

The conference is designed with an interactive, hands-on approach in mind. Rather than lectures, small workshops with demonstrations will be held, to discuss the function of CAT tools and other software issues, vital tools in the everyday work of translation professionals.

For more information and to express interest in the event, visit the conference page: http://www.proz.com/conference/112
