Group Translation Chats (GTC) is a Facebook group of translators and interpreters who like chatting via Zoom. We meet once a month for a hosted session moderated by a volunteer on a specific translation-related topic. You’ll find links to summaries of some of the topics we’ve discussed in the list below.
Besides the monthly formal session, we also schedule drop-in coffee-break chats twice a week on Monday afternoons and Friday mornings.
Our aim is to provide a space where colleagues can talk freely, support each other and share knowledge in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
You can read how the group started in The Group Translation Chats Story. And if you’d like to join us, click on the link above.
