An online version of our perennially popular event

Our panel of translation company representatives will share their advice and experience with participants, talking about how they entered the profession, giving advice on contacting and creating a relationship with translation companies, dealing with queries and difficulties arising from the text and/or project, exploring new subject areas and expanding your skill set.

After initial presentations from the panel and a Q&A session, participants will be grouped into break-out rooms so they can talk more informally with the speakers. The speakers will move between the groups.
