As a new translator I was a bit apprehensive about meeting all these seasoned translators, who would of course be a bit suspicious about this new kid on the block. I couldn't have been more wrong. The atmosphere was warm and open and everybody was quite happy to share their tips and tricks of the trade with me. The balance between sessions and time for networking was excellent. Having a powwow the evening before the conference was a stroke of genius. [...] I had only signed up for one day, thinking I'd be exhausted after meeting all these strangers. I could, however, with no problem, sign up for the Sunday as well. And of course, my fellow translators aren't strangers anymore, but dear friends. Thanks to you all for an unforgettable experience!
