ProZ.com Regional Conference: Skopje 2011

Conference for Translators and Interpreters from the Balkans and SEE countries

Skopje, MKD

Saturday, October 1st, 2011


 

 Welcome to the web site of the 2011 regional conference to be held in Skopje on October 1, 2011 with a pre-conference powwow marking the International Translation Day on September 30, 2011 and a post-conference powwow on Sunday, October 2, 2011 

 

Conference location

Skopje - the capital of the country referred to as the Cradle of culture and land of nature. A city whose history can be traced back some twenty-five centuries.

Although easily accessible in the heart of South-eastern Europe, Macedonia’s ancient sites and natural beauty remain largely undiscovered. Come and feel the warmth of the people, enjoy fine accommodation and delicious food, hear new rhythms and dive into centuries of unbroken tradition.

  

Conference venue

The conference will take place at the modern and luxurious five-star ARKA Hotel, situated in the heart of city’s multicultural and multiethnic life – the Old Skopje Bazaar.
