Are you going to this year’s ATA Annual Conference? See any particularly interesting non-SL sessions on the schedule? Consider writing it up for the SLD blog!
Slavic language sessions are typically thoroughly reviewed in SlavFile in the issues following any given conference, but conferences are also chock-full of sessions in other categories that may also be of interest to our members. We would like to publish short reviews of those sessions on the blog after the conference. Unfortunately, just like every other conference-goer, we can’t be everywhere at once. That’s where you come in!
If you’re planning on going to a session – or several! – that might be a good candidate for a review on the blog, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to contact me even if you are interested in publishing a review, but you don’t have a session in mind yet. Alternatively, you can volunteer to review one of the following sessions that we think might be of interest to the SLD blog readership:
- I-2 Self-Study: Deliberate Practice for Improving Interpreting
- LAW-7 On/Off the Record: Anatomy of a Deposition and How to Master This Niche
- T-2: Translating between the Lines: Enhancing Translation Quality
- ET-1: The Evolving Curriculum in Interpreter and Translator Education: A Preview
- IC-3 Get Your Tool Belt Ready for Jobs: How to Get Hired
- ET-2, ET-3 Collaborative and Situated Translator Training: Moving Toward Transcollaboration
- I-6, I-7: Cultural Competence – When Your Language Skills Are Not Enough
- ATA-3: ATA’s Certification Exam: Questions and Answers
- V-3: Maintaining Your Professional Language Skills
- LSC-7: International Organizations: How They Get Translation Work Done and How to Get Involved
- LAW-5: What It Takes to Become a Certified Court Interpreter
- T-10: Outside the Box: Everyday Continuing Professional Development for Translators
- LSC-10: Data Security for Project Managers
- S-12: Subtitling Cultural References
We invite all of the ATA attendees, but SLD members in particular, to share their newfound knowledge with other and discuss thought-provoking sessions on SLD blog.
