This year is rich in translation and interpreting events, and I’m not going to miss any of them!

Social Media for Translators (online)

In this webinar, together with a colleague Katarzyna E Slobodzian-Taylor, we will be talking about the influence of the social media on our profession. We will discuss various types of social media platforms and their potential. We will also cover using social media to develop expertise in our respective languages and areas of specialisation. You can expect us to cover not only marketing, but also professional development and marketing.

CIoL Members’ Day (London)

If you’re in London, don’t miss this great event! It’s a perfect way to celebrate the International Translation Day. Come over to attend the prestigious Threlford Memorial Lecture, this year given by The Baroness Garden of Frognal, and to participate in a selection of seminars, including mine: “Using Social Media in the Languages Industry: Tips, Strategies and Best Practice”.

Who’s invited: Everyone related to the languages industry.

19 – 21st of October

Language Show Live (London)
Have you ever been to the Language Show Live? If not, this year is a great occasion to give it a try. I’ll be there all 3 days and I will give two seminars. The first one, on Saturday, covers online marketing, blogging, social media and branding. In the second one, on Sunday, I will cover social media exclusively.

Who’s invited: It’s a great family event, and we’ve seen everyone from professional interpreters to high school students. It’s always good to learn more about marketing, isn’t it? (PS It’s all free!)

Fancy attending? Let me know and we can arrange informal meetings afterwards!

    Wow, Marta! Lots going on. I don’t think I can make your online webinar on social media, but plan to watch the video afterward. Good luck with this fall session of sharing with and learning from others!
