(5) Localization spotlight: the Dutch team
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This month's spotlight is on the Dutch localization team:

http://www.proz.com/?sp=localization&sp_mode=team&lang=dut

Henk Peelen -- http://www.proz.com/profile/31907
m onneweer -- http://www.proz.com/profile/684686
Yvonne Glasbergen -- http://www.proz.com/profile/787960
SarahCimmermans -- http://www.proz.com/profile/131339

This is what Henk Peelen, the team leader, had to say about the project:

"I think the localization project makes sense. I like the idea of a lingua franca, an "umbrella language", which makes world-wide communication possible, but also appreciate the cultural richness and (personal) importance of any other language, especially for its native speakers.

I hope one day the general parts of the site will be really available in my native language. "Native" more or less means "born", so it must be kept alive and nurtured."

Each month, the ProZ.com newsletter will feature an article highlighting one of the ProZ.com localization teams and the work they are doing to bring the ProZ.com site to their native languages. If you are a ProZ.com member and you would like to join a localization team in your native language, contact site staff to volunteer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There are only a few weeks left to register for the largest Proz.com event ever held in Spain. With over 120 translation professionals registered to attend this event, this is one you won't want to miss.

This conference will feature presentations on topics surrounding the theme: “The freelance translator as a professional CEO” including:

Konstantin Kisin -- http://www.proz.com/trainer/82508 -- a legal, financial and video game translator, will speak about negotiations and communication skills in an entertaining session to "empower freelancers to achieve their business objectives with ease."

Xosé Castro -- http://www.proz.com/trainer/32223 -- a translator, proofreader and copywriter, will share his expertise on the tools, strategies and creativity needed to find new clients as translators, or in his own words, as "micro-companies".

(10) IV Conferência Brasileira de Tradutores do ProZ.com - Rio de Janeiro, 21, 22 e 23 de setembro de 2012
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Conferência tem o intuito de promover todos os setores da tradução, proporcionando novos aprendizados, discussões, aprimoramento técnico, networking, conhecimento de mercado e, é claro, momentos de alegria e descontração com colegas de profissão.

O Rio de Janeiro é conhecido pelas suas belezas naturais e pelas noites animadas, principalmente embaladas pelo samba. No entanto, hoje, o Rio já é palco de grandes negócios que movimentam contratos importantes e entrou definitivamente no eixo de negócios do Brasil e do mundo com os eventos internacionais de grande porte que acolherá: a Copa de 2014 e os Jogos Olímpicos de 2016.

Aproveite a oportunidade para aprender com profissionais tarimbados e descontrair com os colegas de profissão. Venha rever amigos antigos, conhecer outras pessoas e conversar pessoalmente com aquele colega com o qual você só tem contato virtualmente. Programe sua vinda com antecedência para aproveitar melhores condições de traslado e hospedagem e poder se organizar para conhecer a Cidade Maravilhosa. É o momento de abrir uma pausa na agenda de trabalho para se renovar.

A organização da Conferência e o ProZ terão imenso prazer em recebê-los, bem como nosso Keynote Speaker: Renato Beninatto (www.l10n411.com/ ) e nossa Mestre de Cerimônias: Isabel Vidigal -- http://www.proz.com/profile/93899
