Aptrad is holding its 1st International Conference on 18 and 19 June 2016 in Porto, Portugal.
The theme of the conference will be “Stages in the career of a freelancer” and will tackle the different phases in the career of a professional translator and/or interpreter and what each of those phases requires. All stages of a freelance career as a language practitioner will be considered.
The conference will cover a range of topics focusing on the initial phase of a freelance career, including aspects of Aptrad’s mentoring programmes in which groups of experienced professionals have given advice and support to those just beginning their careers, and will also cover topics of interest to established professionals who are perhaps at a crossroads and rethinking their strategy going forward.
There are enormous challenges at each stage in the life of a translation or interpreting professional. Challenges faced are different at each step of the way. It is these necessary rites of passage and how to confront these demanding challenges that this conference will seek to address and explore.
Two days, and a programme of presentations and workshops with three different sessions happening at any one time. Two days, three simultaneous sessions, and two languages – Portuguese and English! Plenty to learn, plenty to talk about and, of course, plenty to share!
