ProZ.com powwow: Nona & Jo are back in town

October 23, 2010, 2:00 pm
ItalyMilanoIn personItalian
Cari colleghi,

Il PowWow che abbiamo organizzato un anno fa è stato probabilmente quello con il numero di adesioni e partecipanti più alto mai organizzato in Italia... e quindi abbiamo deciso di ripetere l'esperienza, nello stesso ristorante. Stavolta però chiuderemo le prenotazioni a 45 partecipanti. Quindi per favore niente "forse", confermate solo se siete sicuri di farcela. Tenete presente che non possiamo accomodare amici e parenti :(
Questa volta solo traduttori professionisti :)

Vi ricordiamo il ristorante: Indian Restaurant - Via P. Castaldi 42, Milano (MM1 Porta Venezia) - ore 12.00
La gestione è cambiata e quindi non possiamo garantire lo stesso eccellente servizio, ma incrociamo le dita. Comunque, il buffet costa 10,50 euro (pollo, lenticchie, verdure, riso, pane e insalata). Le bevande non sono comprese.

Abbiamo anche pensato, in base all'esperienza passata, di suggerire noi un tema per questo PowWow:La globalizzazione nel mondo della traduzione: opportunità, effetti, difficoltà.

Ci sono stati molti cambiamenti nel business, la crisi economica combinata con Internet ha reso il mercato più difficile e molto più esteso, il tema quindi centrerà su: quali vantaggi e svantaggi hanno portato il mercato globale alla nostra professione?

Quando interverrete con il vostro contributo, per favore, cercate di renderli "neutri" e "generali" dato che devono valere per tutte le combinazioni di lingue.

A presto,
Nona & Jo
.....................

Dear colleagues,

the PowWow we organized last year has probably been the one with the highest number of participants every organized in Italy... and so we have decided to repeat the experience, in the same restaurant. This time we will however close reservations at 45 participants. So please no "maybes", only confirm if you are sure you can make it. Keep in mind that we cannot find place for friends & relatives :)
Only professional translators :)

The address is: Indian Restaurant - Via P. Castaldi 42, Milano (MM1 Porta Venezia) – at noon.
The owners have changed so we cannot guarantee the same excellent service but let's cross our fingers. Anyway, the buffet is 10.50 euro (chicken, lentils, vegetables, rice, bread and salads). Drinks are not included.

We have also decided, on the basis of past experience, to suggest a theme for this PowWow: globalization in the world of translations: opportunities, effects, difficulties.

There have been many changes in the business, the economic slump combined with the Internet has made the market more complex and much larger, the theme will therefore centre on: what advantages and disadvantages have the global market brought to your profession?

When participating with your contributions, please try to make them "neutral" and “general” as they must apply to all language combinations.

See you soon!
Jo & Nona

I'd like to come, but I'm scared of committing myself... Oct 7, 2010

I've dropped out of so many powwows before, that I'll lose whatever shred of respect I have left if I do it again...

My first time in Powwow Oct 12, 2010

Please, let me know what happens during the powwow. Should I prepare myself for something special?

...and I was also wondering what happens during powwows. Since there's a specific theme do we all have to contribute something or do just a few people contribute?

Thanks in advance!

First-timers have to come wearing their national costume... Oct 12, 2010

...or they won't be let in. That's an old pow-wow tradition. Right, guys?

I'm not sure if I should believe you! The problem is that I have no idea where to find Welsh hats in Milan...

take it easy Oct 18, 2010

Perhaps we wrote the presentation of the powwow a bit "seriously"... that's just an attempt to keep it sort of halfway professional. So anyone who worry about contributions, how to dress etc., take it easy!! We had lots of fun last time. Thing is, it was too crowded so we though we would scare off a few people... but don't worry, it's really just social (almost) & you don't have to speak if you don't want to

I went to reserve the restaurant today. Price is confirmed, like last year we ask you to kindly pay when you arrive so we don't have to worry about people forgetting.. and the restaurant includes a dessert in the price as a bonus! See you on Saturday! jo
