MedTranslate Conference October 2014

Freiburg, MartinstorMedTranslate, an international conference for medical & pharma translation professionals, will be held on 4-5 October 2014 in Freiburg, Germany. It’s being organised by The Alexandria Project and GxP Language Services. Here’s a selection of the presentations, workshops and other reasons why I’m going to the conference.

Conference Programme

The full programme is on the MedTranslate website, but here’s a brief selection to illustrate the wide range of topics that will be discussed at the conference:

Friday Workshops

The day before the conference there will be four 3-hour workshops:

  1. Essentials of Chemistry – Ed Zanders
  2. English medical terminology workshop – Alessandra Martelli
  3. Essentials of Biotechnology – Ed Zanders
  4. Quality Assurance for Dummies -Siegfried Armbruster


MedTranslate will be a good learning opportunity for established translators and newcomers alike. But it will also be a great chance to network with fellow translators working in the medical and pharmaceutical field.

I’m looking forward to talking to like-minded professionals, hearing how they work and sharing experiences. Please leave a comment below if you’ve signed up already or are planning to do so. And do come up and say hello at MedTranslate! After all, it will be everyone’s first time there.

Conflicts of Interest

I’m presenting at MedTranslate, but am writing this post from an attendee’s perspective because I think Signs & Symptoms of Translation readers may be interested in this medical translation conference. If you hadn’t heard about MedTranslate elsewhere, I’m glad you have now!

    Hi Emma, this looks like an excellent conference and well worth attending. Probably some stiff competition for MET as well. Unfortunately, due to an event in Birmingham the following week and the MET event later that month I won’t be able to attend. However, I will certainly look at this for next year though. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
