This workshop is intended for regular users of SDL Trados Studio who would like to explore some of the software’s more complex features. Topics will include creating termbases in SDL MultiTerm 2017, as well as formatting and quality assurance options in SDL Trados Studio 2017. If you are familiar with the software but feel you may not be deriving optimum benefit from the software or have queries as regards particular features, this workshop is for you. We will invite participants to submit queries ahead of the workshop in order that we can target particular issues they may wish to have covered as regards the special features of SDL Trados Studio.

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.

LRG Historic Guided Walk - Chiswick Villa and Chiswick Village

Meet: Turnham Green Underground Station (for drivers, Chiswick House Car Park)

Cost: £5 for LRG members; £10 for non-LRG (Additional charge for entry to the house - free for English Heritage and Art Fund members)

The walk will take in the brand new Chiswick Timeline, and proceed along Turnham Green Terrace, Chiswick High Road with its many historic pubs, up the tree-lined Duke’s Avenue into Chiswick House and Gardens. Chiswick House and Grounds, inspired by Palladio and Inigo Jones, with its famous conservatory and lake, was built in the 18th century by Lord Burlington to house his art collection and to serve as a place of entertainment. There will be an option to have lunch in the Café or one of the local pubs, back towards the station.

For drivers, there is a car park at Chiswick House (on the A4).

LRG Guided Pub Walk: Historic pubs in and around Southwark

Meet: Blackfriars Station, exit facing Queen Victoria Street

Cost: Free for LRG members; £5 for non-LRG members

Once again, we will be taken by our expert guide, Roger Bone, to a series of pubs in Southwark, on the south side of the River Thames. We will hear about the history of the pubs, including the Anchor and Market Porter Inns, along with Southwark Cathedral and other notable buildings and places of interest, along the way, and sample the beers! The walk will include the historic but little-known Cross Bones. The walk will end at the remarkable 17c George Inn, with its inner courtyard; there will also be an option to eat at The George Inn (close to Borough or London Bridge stations).
