Meet the Client

at the University of Westminster

A joint LRG/University of Westminster event for LRG members, non-members and students.

This long-standing and very popular annual event is presented by the London Regional Group for the benefit of students, members and non-members. It brings together freelance translators and interpreters and translation and interpreting company representatives.

A star panel of translation company representatives comprises Lindsay Bywood of the University of Westminster, Craig Brown of Dora Wirth Languages, Andy Mann of Way with Words and Clare Suttie of Atlas Translations.

The panel will share their industry experience and talk about what they look for in a translator or interpreter, how they evaluate CVs, their relationship with their panel of freelance service providers, and the specialist skills they value.

After short presentations, a Q&A session will allow participants to quiz the panellists about all aspects of the freelance contract. There will also be small, round-table discussion sessions at which participants can talk to each of the panellists, in smaller, more informal groups. This format has worked well for the past two years.

The event is suitable for translators and interpreters at all levels: students, new entrants to the profession and experienced practitioners alike and is an ideal opportunity to bring work and service providers together.

Fyvie Hall is a large, comfortable venue, with full PA/AV facilities. Light refreshments will be served at the start of the evening and during a mid-evening break.

Venue: University of Westminster, Upper Regent Street, London W1B 2UW (5 min walk from Oxford Circus)

Cost (includes refreshments): LRG members - £10; non-LRG - £15; Student (non-UoW) - £5 refreshments.
NB: UoW MA students should book via Lindsay Bywood
