Aurora Humarán's curator insight, July 15, 5:30 AM

Have you ever wished that translation conferences offered professional programs beyond concise presentations? Opportunities where you could also create, watch others create, and discuss your choices with the help of a writer or poet, to better understand the relationship between thought and language?

IAPTI is lucky because Bordeaux is not only a city of amazing beauty and of outstanding wine, but also the home of one of the founders of creating writing in France, Michel Ducom, who will join us on the day before the conference and help you discover a unique writer: yourself. Join us for a 4-hour multilingual creative writing workshop on Friday September 4. https://www.iapti.org/conferenceFR/workshops/

interpreter's curator insight, June 24, 4:07 AM

We as professional interpreters need to protect our profession, we need to watch over our future, and we need to stop this do-nothing attitude and stand up, educate our clients, better ourselves, join real professional associations that work for the interpreters and not against them, and embracing the new technology, explain to the client that, compared to those I mentioned above, we represent quality, and many times savings, as we work without the middle man, the only actor who is not necessary in this play.
