Room: Maplethorpe Room

Description:
Take a look at the industry from the viewpoint of translation outsourcers.

Speakers:
Bill Maslen (United Kingdom), Co-founder, the Word Gym

Bio: Bill Maslen is Managing Director of the Word Gym, a small craft firm based in Oxford that specializes in the translation and adaptation
(transcreation) of advertising and marketing copy. Prior to founding the Word Gym in 1990, Bill worked first as a conference interpreter, then as a manager (in various capacities) for one of the UK's largest translation companies, and subsequently as executive assistant to the chief executive of another translation company before finally engaging on a career as a freelance translator. As a translator he deliberately specialized in a number of relatively unpopular fields (including machine tools, textiles and finance) until his interest in creative copy prompted him to become a copywriter and "transcreator". Bill was actively involved in the early activities of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting, regularly speaking at conferences and workshops and chairing the conference committee that organized the 1992 ITI Conference in Stratford-upon-Avon.
