National Network for Interpreting news
Date: 16th February 2012Our ‘Careers in Interpreting and Translation’ event took place on 15 February at the University of Leeds. About 150 students, including undergraduates from regional universities, filled a lecture theatre to listen to employers and postgraduate alumni speak inspiringly about translation and interpreting from their own personal experience. Panellists ranged from staff of EU institutions, the UN and the British Refugee Council, to former students freelancing in interpreting, translation and subtitling.
Date: 7th February 2011For those who couldn’t attend the conference in Southampton, some excellent speakers were present; the NNI contribution along with all sessions can now be seen on the LLAS website.
Date: 17th January 2011With 2011 well under way, there is plenty to look forward to in the calender. Events include participation in the LLAS e-Learning Symposium (27, 28 Jan, University of Southampton), a chance to see interpreting in action with a new season of Interpreting Mock Conferences, plus Careers Days and postgraduate open evenings at partner institutions.
