Hello
Following a powwow-less March, the Stammtisch* is back in April! If you're new to ProZ or this is your first powwow and you would like to find out what they are all about, please refer to the ProZ.com FAQ site:
http://www.proz.com/faq/powwows

Please scroll down to the bottom of this page for my message regarding the agenda for the April powwow - the discussion will kick-off at 5pm, so please make sure you're on time, if you wish to participate.

The London Stammtisch is a very informal affair, mainly devoted to chatting and getting to know each other, but if you have any ideas how to enhance our future meetings, please let me know. There is a thread in the forums devoted to this topic: http://www.proz.com/topic/96710

Venue:
Grafton Arms
72 Grafton Way
London W1T 5DU

The nearest tube station is Warren Street, but the pub is also conveniently located in close proximity to Euston, Euston Square and Great Portland Street stations.

See you there!

Powwow Update Apr 20, 2008

Many thanks to everyone who has expressed interest so far! Following some suggestions in the Events Forum (http://www.proz.com/topic/96710), we are going to try out a new format at the April powwow. Apart from the usual informal networking, there is going to be approx. an hour of moderated discussion on the generic topic of freelancing as a translator starting at 5pm.
Some points for discussion:
- How did you start out?... See more
Many thanks to everyone who has expressed interest so far! Following some suggestions in the Events Forum (http://www.proz.com/topic/96710), we are going to try out a new format at the April powwow. Apart from the usual informal networking, there is going to be approx. an hour of moderated discussion on the generic topic of freelancing as a translator starting at 5pm.
Some points for discussion:
- How did you start out?
- Do you work with mainly direct or indirect clients?
- How do you market yourself?
- Do you feel that your rates have gone down (or gone up) over the years?
- Do you supplement your freelance income with income from other sources?
- How do you cope with the peaks and troughs of income in any given month?

See you on Saturday from 4pm!

Thanks
Katharina
