October 2014 saw the second conference organized by the Association of Estonian Translation Companies (ETBL), where Merit Altrov of A&A Lingua was one of the presenters. Speaking before an audience mainly consisting of young translators, Merit talked about the process of recruiting translators by ETBL members, explaining what skills translators are required to have under the European Quality Standard for Translation.
This year’s conference was mainly oriented at people and companies working in the translation industry, aimed at fostering networking, sharing experiences and finding good solutions for furthering the entire sector. Over 140 people attended the conference. Besides presentations and workshops, a so-called speed dating event was held to provide an even more fertile setting for facilitating new contacts.
