(1) Get ready for the 8th annual virtual event in celebration of International Translation Day

Time flies! Seven years ago, the first virtual ProZ.com event was held to celebrate International Translation Day. This year, the eighth annual series of events, as always, is free to attend, and you can participate from anywhere with an internet connection:

* September 28th: Marketing and recruitment event. A unique opportunity to connect with clients seeking translation services and to pick up some tips to improve how you reach new clients.

* September 29th: CAT tool and software day. Attend free sessions on different translation tools. If you are looking to improve how you use your translation software, or are on the market for tools, this is a great opportunity to see what is available, speak to vendors, and get new tools at a discount.

* September 30th: Virtual conference celebrating International Translation Day. Twelve hours of free sessions, panel and group discussions, and networking opportunities.

Already over seven thousand language professionals have registered for this series of events. All attendees will have access to event content after the events end, as well as special discounts on tools and services. Check out the lineup of speakers, sessions and content at the link below. I hope to see you there on the 28th, 29th and 30th, and happy International Translation Day!


(2) New features and improvements in the Translation Center

New features and tools have been added to the translation center powered by ProZ.com, including:

* Projects, and project-specific instructions
* Improvements to reference and client files
* Improved communications
* Feedback on service providers
* Multiple language pairs in invitations to service providers


ProZ.com Business members get access to their own instance of the translation center for managing their projects and translators.
