Translators' meetup · Week 4/Fri.25th.Jan.2019? at a bar near us

8 posts in this topic

Can't believe a whole month has gone by - wheredigo?

 

If any translators – pro, part-time or aspiring – feel like casting off the fetters binding them to their desks and emerging blinking into the real world, you’re welcome to join us at our meetups.

 

Dates and days are irregular but we try to meet once a month, usually somewhere relaxed with nice food and drink. We have our favourite locations but are always open to new suggestions about where to meet.

 

Subjects discussed are usually wide-ranging, as befits the enormous scope of stuff we translate; or sometimes we just get drunk and moan about clients. Come one, come all. Roll up, roll up.

 

This is also open to translators who don't have fetters, agoraphobia or workaholism, by the way. If you exist.

Happy New Year everybody! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make the last few meetings owing to pressure of work. But I have signed up for the BDÜ-Neujahrsempfang at the Paulaner Bräuhaus this Sunday and was wondering whether anyone else is going? It would be great to catch up. You don't have to be a BDÜ member (I'm not!) and it sounds like there'll be a slap-up brunch and plenty of opportunities for networking. They're still accepting registrations (the deadline is today, though). Hope to see you all again soon.

Thanks, Choc! 

I've registered online :)  Do you want to meet at the reception around 11:00? Or what time did you want to go?

Thanks for the information, Choc! I won't be able to make it but expect a full report from you two as spies...

 

So Happy New Year to all of you out there, and hope you all made it hale and hearty into 2019. Wishing you a sparkly and sensational year! 

Looking forward to seeing you again - we had fun at Kabul in December, which btw is superb for conversations where everyone can hear everyone. A rarity! 

So let's talk dates. Week 4? (Mon 21st to Fri 25th Jan). All date suggestions welcome...

Well, not sure I can make it this time, because the 25th is the only day I can’t come :-( There’s a big slide show on the changes in Ilembula, Tanzania since 2004, the first time that someone from our group when there. I could make any other day.
