Title: Sailing Close to the Wind: Creativity Under Pressure
Presenter: David Warriner
Some clients—and jobs—are more demanding and time-sensitive than others. Just when you thought your deadline couldn’t get any tighter, your client proves you wrong.
How do you keep the creativity flowing and stay the course when the pressure is on?
With examples from press releases and media bulletins in the fast-paced world of international sport event management, this workshop features practical exercises and advice you can transfer to any translation playing field.
11:30 Lunch (complimentary for members)
12:30 Workshop #2
Title: DL Trados Studio 2017 - What's New?

For 30 years, Trados has developed and offered translation technology with stable language platforms.
