Translators: Stand Up! Time to confront the devil

Date and time: 09:00-10:30, Sunday, 14 June, 2015
NOTE: This session has already been held

Room: Panorama West

It is not a frontline news, we all know that "the devil is in the details"! All of the meanings for the term boil down to the fact that it is often the small details of something which make it difficult or challenging. Translation is no exception. Translation assignments are all about very small but ultimately important components that can prolong a task, or foil an otherwise straightforward job. Freelance translators should be in no mood to be deceived any longer by the crafty devil and those tiny details.
This workshop assists freelance translators to streamline the translation process, focus on some of the most important aspects of everyday work, and understand many concepts pertaining to specialized translation job requests. The session also analyzes the "Bermuda Triangle Syndrome"
