Thanks to everyone who made Translate in the Catskills 2011 a success! With 50 participants and top-notch instructors, our three day conference brought together some of the most energetic minds working in translation today. Thanks also to Pastor Al Bugos for allowing us to use his church’s community hall and gym and to the folks at the Catskill Mountain Foundation for all of their help in organizing the conference.
2009 participants said…
“A big “thank you” to the excellent presenters and organizers for this wonderful learning experience. The company was the best, the atmosphere unbeatable, and it was so deeply satisfying and energizing to work together – although it felt more like calm, focused play in that comfortable, casual setup, with natural beauty all around us. I’ve never experienced anything like it.”
–Stephanie Cash, attendee
“This has been one of the most *energizing* translators’ events I’ve ever experienced in my professional life. Translating is Writing. And writing is all about creativity, about unleashing whatever creative potential is in you. Thanks to my fellow speakers, I have explored new ways to do just that – even in the seemingly “dry” world of financial translation. Que demander de plus ? Many thanks to all.”
–Dominique Jonkers, instructor
“Since I attended Translate in the Catskills 2009, my clients have complimented my writing more than they did in the previous six years combined. The instructors really helped me break out of my ‘But that’s not what the French says!’ mindset and focus on writing authentic English documents that “sing.” In addition, the seminar was great fun and an excellent opportunity to connect with like-minded translators in a gorgeous setting.”
