Training, networking, connecting… Because at training events, we make friends and connect. There is so much coming up!
The October season is filling up, and it’s March! Mark your calendars for your favorite events. NOTIS, OSTI and others are planning their conferences. After all, it is International Translators Day on September 30, so we always celebrate with… conferences!
Simultaneous interpreting training. This isn’t just for court interpreters. There are business conferences, medical conferences…
Indigenous language interpreting – relay training. I would expect this training to be useful for non-court settings as well! And we need the help and support here. Spread the word, so we can help the entire community.
IMIA (International Medical Interpreting Association) in the DC area in April, NAJIT (National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators) in Atlanta in May, ATA (American Translators Association) in Miami in November… opportunities to travel with friends!
At OSTI we try to connect translators, court interpreters, medical interpreters, spoken language and sign language. All events have a place on the calendar! Growing as a profession involves connecting at the local level, the national level, between different branches, learning from unexpected groups. Browse the calendar and see what might be of interest. And if you want to host something, or know of something interesting, just send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. OSTI will follow up with you.
