ATA Conference: Next Month!

At the Denver conference in 2010.
October marks one of our favorite months, including one of our very favorite weeks of the year: the ATA conference in gorgeous San Diego, California! We have the chance to hang out with all our wonderful friends and colleagues, get to learn a lot and enjoy each other's company, too! This year, just like in 2012, the ATA has invited the presidents and leaders of translator and interpreter associations from other countries (those associations do the same when they have annual conferences). Dagy has the pleasure of serving as secretary general of UNIVERSITAS Austria Interpreters' and Translators' Association and is delighted to accept the ATA's invitation to represent Austria at the 53rd Annual Conference. We will be presenting a German-language session on "Austriacism for Beginners" -- join us if you are interested! The session code is G-5 and it will be held on Friday from 11:30 until 12:30 pm. In addition, Judy will present her popular workshop "10 Habits of Highly Successful Interpreters and Translators," which will be on Friday from 3:45 to 5 pm (session code IC-7).

Now, if you've never been to an ATA conference: where do you start? It's a huge event,  but attendees are usually very approachable and you should be able to meet new people relatively quickly. The best way to prepare for the conference is to attend the free webinar presented by our friend and colleague Jill Sommer:  Tips for Navigating Your First ATA Conference on September 11. She also gives this session on the very first day of the conference,  but by taking the free webinar ahead of time, you will save time and effort -- and you will know what to expect. Register here. We look forward to seeing you at the conference! We can usually be found at the InTrans books booth, spending time at the NITA table, joining our friends for lunch, dinner and receptions and yes, perhaps at the hotel bar.

Folks should also know that if they missed the webinar--which I also heartily recommend--they can watch a recording. Same link!

Looking forward to seeing you both there!

I can't wait to attend to Judy's session on "10 habits"

I'm sure it's gonna be useful, original and memorable, like all your presentations!

If I spoke German I would go to the other one too!
