Translator Tuesdays

Launched in March this year, Translator Tuesdays are casual virtual meet-ups to talk about translation: experiences, questions, reading, strategies, tools, travails, and trivia. The hour-long sessions, moderated by Daniel Morales, start at 8:00 p.m. JST on the first Tuesday of the month. Here is what is coming up:

June 4  In June, we will focus our conversation on the language we use to communicate as translators. What vocabulary and grammar patterns have been useful for you when communicating with clients/partners? Do you have different strategies when communicating in writing versus when talking to a client/partner?

July 2. It's summertime, and while it may be too hot to spend much time outside, it's nice to dream about translating from the beach. What does your translation work environment look like? Do you have an office or work from home? Are you a nomad and can you take your work environment with you? Are there any items you find particularly valuable for creating an effective space in which to translate? Come with all your questions and recommendations to share.
