Translation Seminar

with 11 comments

We are all excited this coming Monday, June 8, 2009 for the upcoming Translation Seminar to be held in Pampanga, Philippines. Translators and writers all over  different  departments are invited for this seminar. Participants from every department will also have a chance to meet and exchange ideas and new techniques to better strengthen the whole team.

Our department is expected to attend this seminar, since we are tasked for subtitling. We are psyched about this seminar because of the fact that we ought to wear things we don’t usually wear. Since we mainly focus on translation, we don’t have a dress code or uniform. But for this particular event we are required to wear formal wear. I was thinking if I would look like James Bond with his suit on. Well, I’m not the hero type person. Since we are used to wearing our normal casual clothes, we need to embark on this new journey of style and fashion. Of course you are not there because you can show off  your taste concerning clothes, you are there for the very purpose on improving your craft.

 Since the topic is focused mainly on translations, we expect  workshops for better sentence construction, choice of words and common errors. Sometimes, this common errors can pull you down and degrade the quality of your work. So being aware of your weakness and strength is a must.

I always remember that  you should always think that there is always room for improvement. There are new things out there that with proper research and application will help you with your task.
