Have you ever wondered how translators manage to get into the business, or have you been thinking about ways to translate more efficiently and save time and money? The Japan Association of Translators (JAT) is hosting PROJECT Nagoya 2011 on Saturday, November 12.
PROJECT events are a chance to meet other translators and share tips about how to take advantage of the latest technology, as well as discover new and interesting ways on how to translate from both Japanese to English and vice versa.
This year will be the first PROJECT held in Nagoya, and the event will be from 9:30 AM to 4:45 PM at WINC Aichi – just 5 minutes on foot from Nagoya station! PROJECT events attract both potential and experienced translators from all over Japan, as well as abroad.
This year’s theme is “The Technical Side to Translating and Interpreting,” and we have many different speakers who are coming to speak on topics such as how to translate difficult sentences, a comparison of different CAT (Computer Aided Translation) tools, as well as translation for specific fields. The admission fee for JAT members is ¥7000, while the fee for non-members is ¥8000.
These events are one of the biggest in the world for getting into Japanese to English or English to Japanese translation, and this year you have an opportunity to attend such an event right here in Nagoya!
