Translation Workshop and Weekend of Networking Activities
The annual ITI Translation Workshop will be held this year at Heriot-Watt University in the beautiful city of Edinburgh on Saturday 20th October. In addition we have arranged for a full weekend of activities so that, whether you come from near or far, there will be opportunities to learn, share and network with fellow professionals. As Edinburgh is a real destination city we hope you take the opportunity to join in some or all of the social activities and make this a memorable weekend. Don’t forget to bring a friend or your partner – there is so much for them to do whilst you are at the workshop on the Saturday. Apply now and don’t miss the early bird discount.
We have arranged for discounts at a variety of hotels in the city centre and it is here that the weekend starts on Friday evening with a meal and the chance to meet up with old acquaintances. Later in the evening, for those of us that are still awake, we may also fit in a ghost walk!
On Saturday we have transport on offer to take you from the city centre hotels out to the Heriot-Watt campus. The workshop format is constantly evolving as we take on board the feedback from previous years. This year the theme will be ‘Renewal’ and there will be three sessions covering commercial/ business, technical/scientific and a lighter, cultural session. As before, the day will be challenging but enjoyable for the experienced professional translator, it will also be valuable as it will qualify for CPD hours.
Optional transport back to the city centre hotels has been laid on so that there will be enough time for a chat about the day and maybe to meet up with your friend or partner before our Scottish-themed evening meal and entertainment. We expect this to round off an outstanding day.
For those who have still got a bit of energy left, we have arranged a city walk on Sunday morning. For those that feel a little less energetic we can arrange a city bus tour on the day. Whichever you decide to take we will aim to round off the weekends activities with lunch in one of Edinburgh’s famous watering holes. We hope you will join us for all or part of what will be a weekend to remember.
The Friday evening meal will be held at the Jurys Inn Hotel at 8pm with drinks from 7pm. Transport to and from Heriot-Watt will also be based there. Our Saturday evening entertainment will be at the King James Thistle Hotel which is just 3 minutes walk away. We have arranged for discounts for staying at both these hotels, full details can be found on the booking website. There is also a Travelodge nearby and various other hotels to accommodate all budgets.
