   2 October - CAT Tools Workshop by Jost Zetzsche
                        San Francisco, United States of America

This workshop will focus on computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools, which can be more accurately referred to as "translation environment tools." Attendees will see that tools like Déjà Vu, memoQ, Google Translator Tool Kit, or Wordfast Pro are not only CAT tools, but truly have an environment that allows translators to also manage terminology, provide quality assurance, work in complex file formats, cooperate with others, and much more. Jost will focus on the similarities between these specific (and other) tools as well as on differentiating factors. Attendees will also be introduced to new developments in translation memory and terminology management technologies as well as a quick overview of supporting tools for text/term extraction or translation memory maintenance. Jost Zetzsche is an ATA-certified English>German translator and a localization and translation consultant. A native of Hamburg, Germany, he earned a PhD in the field of Chinese translation history and linguistics and began working in localization and technical translation in 1997. In 1999, he co-founded International Writers' Group on the Oregon coast. His computer guide for translators was published in 2003 and he now sends out a biweekly technical newsletter for translators.

   6-8 October - Localization World Conference
                           Seattle, Washington, USA

Benefits for Conference Attendees:

* Targeted networking. For most conference attendees networking is as important — if not more important — than the content of the conference. But networking is often limited to the occasional chat during coffee breaks and luncheons. This unique network allows them to plan conference breaks and make sure that they can compare notes with the people they most want to see.
* Filter unsolicited selling. Many customers in the localization industry feel overwhelmed by solution providers at conferences. LocWorld will help to filter out unsolicited selling during the conference. Vendors are offered the opportunity to establish contact beforehand. The customer is free to accept or decline this request.
* Establish peer groups. Listing and categorizing common points of interest helps attendees to the conferences to have fruitful discussions and exchanges of experiences in focused sessions.
* Maximize value from conference. Attendees to the conference will take more out of the conference than just the programmed content and will be able to continue using LocWorld after the conference is over.

   6-8 October - Horizon Justice Française

   7-8 October - 8th International Languages and the Media Conference and Exhibition
                           Berlin, Germany

Digitisation and the explosion in digital content, social media, cloud computing and new platforms offer growing opportunities for audiovisual production, distribution and localisation. These developments are flanked by diversifying concepts and modes of audiovisual translation (multidimensional translation, all forms of accessibility), consequently blurring distinctions and supposed dichotomies (professional versus amateur, productivity versus quality, subtitling versus dubbing, etc.).

   9 October - Developments in Remote Legal Interpreting - Interpreting Division

The aim is to provide you with an understanding of what is required to become a successful voiceover artist. You will have the chance to record your own voice and have your recording analysed straightaway. Places are limited to ensure that each person receives full support and attention. 

   10-11 October - Networking Days Dublin

The conference organisers, Professor Felicity Rash, Dr Geraldine Horan, Dr Daniel Wildmann and Dr Stefan Baumgarten, invite proposals in the form of abstracts of about 150-200 words on relevant topics in the analysis of pre-1945 nationalist, anti-Semitic or colonialist discourse. We welcome contributions which discuss issues of methodology or which adopt interdisciplinary approaches, and we hope to foster debate on points of contact between linguistics and the historical analysis of political and ideological discourses. We would be particularly interested in contributions on nationalist figures who are less well-represented in discourse research. It is hoped that academic colleagues at all levels of their careers, including postgraduate students, will offer to present papers or lead workshops.

   11-13 October - TRX10
                               Bundaberg Area, Australia

Building on the success of TRX09, TRX10 aims to set new standards for the region in stimulating trans-disciplinary collaborations across all areas of human disease research, drug and diagnostic discovery and development, IT and bioinformatics.
Managers and scientists in medical research institutes, universities and bio-pharmaceutical companies have witnessed an explosive development in the application of powerful computing, laboratory automation, and molecular sciences. The world over, the convergence of these disciplines brings about a fundamental shift in the way medical research, drug research and, ultimately, patient care is undertaken. This shift also impacts academia, industry and governments.
Pharmacogenomics, toxicogenomics, visualisation of disease mechanisms and many other innovative disciplines and technologies all produce an incredible amount of data that then needs to be managed, analysed and interpreted in a relevant biological and medical context which is made possible by bioinformatics - the application of information technology, statistics and mathematics to biological and medical problems involving large volumes of data with complex inter-relationships.
In order to create an international awareness focussed on the Asia-Pacific Region’s current translational biomedical research, IT and bioinformatics capabilities, TRX10 brings together these diverse yet related disciplines and stakeholders in the relaxed subtropical surroundings of Brisbane in Queensland, and provides a platform where delegates can share issues and best practices related to translational research, policy-making, enabling technologies and bioinformatics.

   11–14 October - LISA Forum Europe: Building Quality, Building Customers
                                Budapest, Hungary

The localization industry has made tremendous strides in terms of efficiency and capacity in the past twenty years. Quality, however, has remained an elusive goal. While it is an important goal, companies cannot agree on what quality is exactly or how to obtain it. Nor can they agree on who is responsible for quality: is it the client or the globalization service provider ultimately responsible?
Everyone says that they want quality, but what is it that they really need and what are they willing to pay for it? What quality expectations are reasonable and at what price? Can we define standardized service levels? When nobody can agree as to what it is, how can globalization providers deliver “quality” results? What aspects of quality matter and to whom? Only holistic views of quality can identify the roots of problems and enable us to solve them.

   13 October - The LOC tool for teachers: authoring your own online learning materials
                           Treforest Campus, University of Glamorgan

This blended-delivery workshop will be of interest to teachers with an interest in, but little experience of, online materials development, and who are happy to share their materials with the sector.
The workshop will involve the introduction of the new online version of the LOC (Learning Object Creator), an authoring tool for the creation of online learning material, which is designed to be easy to use and includes in-built pedagogical guidance for the creation of effective materials.
Participants will get a chance to discover the pedagogical background to the tool and begin to plan their own activity through a series of pre-workshop tasks; and then at the face-to-face workshop will use the tool in the creation of their own material, ending the day by sharing and peer-reviewing their outputs. The workshop will mix hands-on activity with discussion and presentation. A post-workshop task involves the creation of some learning material and the submission of it to the Subject Centre. Participants can then have unlimited access to the tool, to start using it in their own institutions, and will also have the opportunity to join our online community of developers.

23-24 October - RuhrKO2010 „Language as an Economic Factor”
                            Dortmund, Germany

International commerce nowadays is barely conceivable without cross-border business relationships. Irrespective of the size of the businesses involved, country borders have long ceased to act as barriers when defining sales and purchasing markets. There is hardly any region where this is more evident than in Europe, where the internal market reaches across 27 different countries – of which 16 already share a common currency. At the same time, Europe means numerous different countries, with a wealth of different cultures, and hence many different languages. Even if a Federal European State were to become reality, these languages would remain: after all, they play a vital role in the culture and history of Europe’s peoples. Language fosters and highlights regional diversity – a very positive aspect in many ways, but also a challenging one. Without the skills of many translators and interpreters, who ensure that all those involved understand each other, the European Parliament could not function. Germany was the world's leading exporting nation in 2008, and – despite China’s ascendancy during 2009 – is still a massive exporter: consequently, language plays a major role in German commerce. A role that is often underestimated, or not recognised at all. To raise public awareness of language services providers (LSPs) in business, Ralf Lemster Financial Translations GmbH – in cooperation with Mr Jerzy Czopik – is organising an international conference for translators and interpreters. The event will take place in October 2010, at the Zeche Zollern industrial museum site in Dortmund, Germany.

   29-31 October - Conference on “Music, Poetry and Translation”
                               New York City, United States of America

BARNARD COLLEGE CENTER FOR TRANSLATION STUDIES International Conference on “Music, Poetry and Translation” Barnard College, New York City October 29-31, 2010 Preliminary program (at July 12, 2010) Abstract: Analogies between poetry and music go back thousands of years, to the very origins of poetry itself. Poetry, we are told, is music, or at least more like music than other uses of language. Poetry translation also goes back a very long way. And so does the idea that music cannot be translated.... If poetry is music (or at least is characterized by a musical element), and music cannot be translated, how is a translator to cope with the music in poetry? That simple question has never been addressed directly and systematically, but it is one that binds together translators themselves, and two of the academic fields of inquiry that have proved most compelling over recent years: translation studies, and word and music studies. This conference will bring together people across the spectrum, from philosophers of aesthetics who have studied how words cope with the strange phenomenon we call music, to literature specialists who have dealt both in theory and in practice with how music in poetry passes from one language to another, and experts on the history of translation. The interdisciplinary nature of this conference will ensure multiple approaches to the problem, and cast new light, we hope, on one of the most challenging questions for literary translation. Speakers: Ronnie Apter (Central Michigan University), Emerita Professor of English Scott Burnham (Princeton University), Music Peter Connor (Barnard College), French Peter Dayan (University of Edinburgh), Word and Music Studies Peter France (University of Edinburgh), Emeritus Professor of French Marc Froment-Meurice (Vanderbilt University), French Marylin Gaddis Rose (SUNY-Binghamton), Comparative Literature Susan Gillespie (Bard College), independent translator Lydia Goehr (Columbia University), Music and Philosophy John Hamilton (Harvard University), Comparative Literature and Classics Kenneth Haynes (Brown University), Comparative Literature and Classics Robert Hullot-Kentor (Long Island University), Philosophy Charlotte Mandell, independent translator Brian O’Keeffe (Barnard College), French John Sallis (Boston College), Philosophy Clive Scott (University of East Anglia), Emeritus Professor of European Literature Location: Event Oval, The Diana Center Barnard College New York City U.S.A.
