Dear All
I am a seasoned English-Turkish translator/localizer and run TTC Language Services Limited. I am based in the UK.

I have followed the previous powwow meeting sin Toronto with interest. I will be visiting Canada in February and I thought how great it will be to get together with fellow prozians.

I organised a similar meeting in Ankara in January and it was a great experience.

Please suggest a venue, anywhere in Central toronto would be great.

I look forward to hearing from you.

different perspective Jan 25, 2012

I am pretty sure that we all have similar challenges in our respective countries. As I am running a translation company, I can provide you with a translation company's perspective which may be useful to particularly new translators: What comes across as nice and how to connect with translation company project managers.

My recent blog received quite good feedback from many colleagues. Link is below if anyone is interested: ...

I agree with you 100%, and I was glad to see that I do not make those mistakes.

At the top of this page, it says the Powwow is set for 2pm. You can stay as long as you wish, they usually last 2-3 hours.

Where was everybody? Feb 13, 2012

Yesterday, we found the B&B pub closed and we went to the Starbucks, as the note at the B&B said, but there was nobody. What happened to you guys?

Too bad you missed it Feb 13, 2012

I arrived late-ish, but had no trouble finding the group at Starbucks (on the corner of Bloor and Church). At 3 p.m. we moved to the original venue, the Bishop and the Belcher.
