Conferences and other translation events are a great way of learning more about our industry, picking up some useful ideas and information on translation-related products and practices, and, of course, meeting colleagues and potential clients.
If you cannot attend conferences for whatever reason, there are other ways to network. Translation associations and/or university language departments usually hold one-day or half-day events, such as workshops or translation slams, that might be easier for colleagues to fit into their schedule and budget.
Below you can find links to my reviews of some of the conferences and other translation events I and guest posters have attended, as well as other related posts.
