Keeping in touch with other professionals through live events and online groups is invaluable for a freelance translator. Through my active involvement in three ITI networks – German Network, Western Regional Group and Media, Arts & Tourism Network – I benefit from a lively exchange of knowledge and ideas, despite working from home.
As a qualified member of the ITI, I also complete at least 30 hours of continuing professional development each year. My CPD typically consists of a broad range of activities, from translation software tutorials and webinars through to workshops, conferences and literary fairs. Listed below is a selection of activities undertaken in recent years, as well as details of other significant events.
