Workshops, courses and conferences for translators
My business partner, Marcel Lemmens, and I together form Teamwork. We first started organising conferences, courses and workshops for translators and language editors back in 1993. The aim of these training sessions is to offer translators, languages editors, translator trainers and managers and staff of translation companies and in-house translation departments an opportunity to boost their professional expertise by improving their translation or business skills. We arrange many of these sessions in collaboration with guest speakers from within and beyond the translation industry.
The topics addressed by our courses and conferences are designed to meet the needs of professional linguists and also to reflect the latest trends in the translation market and in the world at large. Past courses have centred on legal, financial and technical topics such as family law, employment law, international financial reporting and engineering, as well as more translation-specific themes such as ‘revising your own work’ and changes in English punctuation conventions. Other courses are geared towards the business and administrative needs of translators as self-employed professionals or translation company owners. Upcoming courses are displayed in the right-hand column on this page.
