InText Translation Company has attended and sponsored ProZ.com Conference Ukraine 2011. The event was held in Kharkiv on September 17-18. The conference gathered members of ProZ.com, the world’s largest community of translators that was established in 1999 and now consists of over half a million registered users. ProZ.com provides a wide range of services and contains plenty of useful resources providing freelancers with opportunities for constant personal and professional growth. As always, education, communication and support were the main goals of the event, and organizers put a lot of efforts to achieve them and make the atmosphere of the event friendly and pleasant.
Both beginning and experienced freelancers had a wonderful opportunity to share experiences, hear advice of like-minded specialists and discuss linguistic and general questions with others. InText was happy to support the conference this year because professional growth of freelance translators in Ukraine is as important to our development as improvements in internal workflow of the company. Our representatives were delighted to notice a greatly increased technical and professional level of freelancers and a better understanding of the industry rules.
Our QA manager Valentyna Kozlova gave a presentation on innovative approach to cooperation with freelancers that InText has adopted. The presentation attracted a lot of interest and was followed by a lively discussion.
We were glad to participate in this conference and immerse ourselves in the vibrant ProZ.com community for two days. We hope that ProZ.com will continue to hold events in Ukraine in the future and will be looking forward to attending them again.
