There is no other conference in this country which in its magnitude and multidimensionality could be compared to yearly American Translators Association conferences.
Jinny and I have just recently come back from the 51st annual ATA conference in Denver, CO. The event brought together almost 1500 language professionals from all over the world! It addition to 170 workshops and presentations, it offered unprecedented networking opportunities, job marketplaces, book presentations, and an extraordinary collection of exhibitors. Most importantly, each of us had a chance to participate in the Annual Meeting of All Members and in ATA division meetings shaping the future of our industry and of our profession.
We were very happy to meet many of our former, current, and, hopefully, future students! Many of you came to say “Hi!” and let us know that you enjoy reading our newsletters. Thank you! It was wonderful meeting you in person!
An attempt to describe everything that was taking place in Denver’s Hyatt in those four October days would be a futile effort. Taking a more humble approach, I would like to share with you a few of my personal highlights.
