LRG Open Networking Event and celebration of LRG’s 25th Birthday

Venue: The Devereux Pub, 20 Devereux Court, Temple, London WC2R 3JJ (back to our favourite venue!)

Cost: LRG Members – free; non-LRG - £5

The committee has been so busy this year, organising a large number of CPD and social events, we rather lost sight of the fact that 2019 is our 25th Anniversary. As it is too late to plan an anniversary event in 2019, we have decided to organise a cake and celebratory drink for the traditional January Open Networking Evening.

The focus of the Open Networking event will be on the benefits of partnering or collaboration. Nathalie Reis will introduce a discussion on partnering with other translators, for proofreading, working in tandem, marketing, accountability buddies, after which small discussion groups can share their own experiences, if any, and think about advantages and disadvantages.

Two of the most pre-eminent practitioners in the field will talk about the opportunities and challenges of medical and pharmaceutical conference interpreting and the kind of training required. Kirsty Heimerl-Moggan and Summer Mouallem are both experienced medical and pharmaceutical interpreters.

There are large amounts of work for interpreters in the medical and pharmaceutical market, such as medical conferences on topics such as cardiology and diabetes, investigator meetings, medical market research or medical training courses on new technologies and treatments.

The InterpMeds team presents and trains interpreters (experienced and budding) and will be sharing their experience on Medical and Pharmaceutical Conference Interpreting with the ITI London Regional Group. They will give an insight into the prerequisites for and the work of medical and pharmaceutical interpreters and offer useful advice, hints and tips related to their work.
