MD Emma Pielen and Sales Manager, Heike Held, and spent an exhilarating few days in Freiburg in October attending the very first instance of a new translator conference – TriKonf 2013 (www.trikonf.com).
The programme for the conference was absolutely packed with a huge range of excellent speakers and talks on issues relevant to the translation industry at the moment. The problems and complexities surrounding machine translation was a much discussed topic, as were quality, productivity and specialisms in translation.
The relaxed atmosphere at the conference was conducive to networking and new friends and contacts were made.
The team is already looking forward to the next Freiburg conference in 2015!
