Do you want to build your professional toolkit? Are you looking for opportunities to hone your craft and polish your skills? Are you on the lookout for CE’s (continuing education credits)? Interested in participating in educational development workshops this fall?
The Oregon Society of Translators and Interpreters (OSTI) is an organization that fosters ongoing professional development in the fields of translation and interpreting. It allows colleagues of all languages and specializations to stay informed and connected.
Our Conference will be offering presentations and workshops with a variety of topics that will appeal to all interpreters and translators, with a focus on court and medical. The workshops will be geared to promote continuing education, development of your profession and growth. Our speakers are high quality professionals and university professors, that have presented at prestigious conferences such as the ATA, IMIA and CHIA. They will be coming from Ohio, California, Arizona and even Brazil, just to name a few. This year’s conference promises to be chock-full of information and education.
Come network with other professionals, colleagues, and make new friends!
