Translation and the Catskills

Through our colleague Corinne McKay we just heard about a fantastic workshop that she is helping organize in the Catskills this August. It's mainly geared towards French<->English translators, but all other languages are welcome as well. The conference will be held August 21-23 in Maplecrest, NY (roughly three hours north of NYC). The main focus of the event will be writing skills in the target language and how freelance translators can succeed in their field. The line-up of presenters is top-notch and includes Chris Durban, Grant Hamilton and Ros Schwartz for French to English and Dominique Jonkers and François Lavallée for English to French. The small size of the conference and the gorgeous surroundings will make for quality time with fellow translators.

This might be a great alternative for those who are unable to make it to the ATA's 50th Annual Conference in New York City at the end of October.
