MET Meeting in Madrid

banner METM14A quick heads-up about the 10th MET meeting in El Escorial (Madrid) on 30 October-1 November.  The emphasis at MET meetings is on sharing knowledge and expertise among editors and translators who work into or with English. This year the theme is “Innovation and tradition: mining the human resource”.

Topics at the workshops and conference will include:

  • Terminology searches on the Internet
  • Corpus-guided decision-making
  • Understanding practical statistics
  • CAT tool interoperability for team work
  • Grammar for native (and non-native) English linguists
  • Mentoring models
  • Machine translation – perspectives from experts and novices


METM14 will also be a place for networking, with interest-specific meal tables, a yoga session and a short walk in the Madrid mountains.

I went to the 9th MET meeting last year and was impressed by the friendly people and quality content. (Read my METM13 review here.) I’ll be going again this October as a listener and presenter, sharing my experience with Windows 8.

Why sign up now?

Two good reasons: Off-MetM places for the lunch/dinner groups are going fast, and the early registration price ends on 10 September.

See you there!
