If you’re enjoying the lovely summer weather we’re having here in (most of) the UK, then maybe a translation conference is the last thing on your mind. But, come September, a few days of workshops and presentations in a beautiful setting with great company (translators do love a get-together!) will be just the ticket to get us geared up for the autumn.
So check out the Cracow Translation Days, taking place from 5 to 8 September in the beautiful setting of the Benedictine abbey of Tyniec, 13 km southwest of Cracow (whose old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
I’ll be giving one of the presentations (on educational outreach and promoting language learning) but don’t let that put you off – there’ll be lots of other speakers: Ralf Lemster, Siegfried Armbruster, Katarzyna Slobodzian-Taylor, John Moran, Anne Diamantidis, Chris Durban, Jerzy Czopik, Nick Rosenthal, Marta Stelmaszak, Sabine Dievenkorn, Siegfried Armbruster and Stefan Gentz (apologies if I missed anyone out).
Not to mention a social programme that includes a trip to a salt mine!
