LRG Spring Meet-Up and Pub Lunch

New Committee member Natalie Clark has found a lovely pub, on the Thames, between Hammersmith and Putney Bridges. The Crabtree Riverside Public House is an iconic pub situated on the quietest and most picturesque stretch of the Thames between Hammersmith & Putney bridges. We have reserved a table so that we can sit together and eat or just enjoy drinks from the bar. If you, together with family members and/or friends would like to come along, please reserve a place with Eventbrite in the normal way. Please pay the £10 booking fee which will be discounted from your bill on the day, so that LRG can pay the £150 deposit in order to secure the booking. Very much looking forward to seeing you on Sun, 28 April. Your LRG Committee

Pricing with TM Tools - a hands-on workshop

Venue: CenTraS TransCluster (216-220 Foster Court, UCL, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT)

Travel: Euston Station, Euston Square Station, Kings Cross Station, Russell Square Station, St. Pancras International Station, Warren Street Station. Buses to Gower Street or Warren Street Station (10, 14, 24, 29, 73, 134, 390).

Cost (to cover catering and administrative costs): LRG £10; non-LRG £15; Students (non-UCL) £5

CPD: 2 hours

The aim of this workshop is to look at and discuss different pricing models when working with TM tools such as SDL Trados Studio and memoQ. We will start by having an in-depth look at the Analysis feature of both SDL Trados Studio 2019 and memoQ 8.5 and will then run a few analyses against a TM. Our next step will be to work out the required translation effort (via weighted word counts) as well as prices based on TM discount models, both for quoting and invoicing purposes. There will be time for discussion.

This workshop is aimed at participants with at least a BASIC WORKING KNOWLEDGE of TM tools. Participants will also be invited to submit specific queries/requests regarding pricing with TM tools ahead of the workshop.

The workshop will be led by Daniela Ford, a highly experienced user and SDL approved trainer, with support from this year’s MSc and MA Translation students at CenTraS@UCL.
