MEET THE CLIENT

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

Thu 19 March 2015 5.30 to 9.30 pm

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

A star panel of translation company representatives: Clare Suttie of Atlas Translations, Howard Cardinal of Dora Wirth (Languages) Ltd, Jonathan Coutts of John Venn & Sons and Lindsay Bywood of Voice & Script International, 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, there will be a Q&A session during which participants will be able 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.

Light refreshments will be served at the start of the event and during a mid-evening break: tea/coffee/juices/water/biscuits.

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.

Costs, to include refreshments: LRG members: £10; non-LRG: £15; Student (non-UoW): £5

NB: UoW MA students should book via their Course Director.
