Inky Tradopus

Inky Tradopus is our cute mascot and the official MC for all the fun and fringe events. Want to find out her story?

Inky symbolises the multi-tasking capabilities of freelance translators. She has one tentacle for each important task—translating, researching, marketing, management, communicating, integrating technology, invoicing and networking. Plus, she's super cute! And if you like her name, you should know that she was „baptised” by two very gifted colleagues who've won two free tickets for the next edition of TranslateCluj.

  • Fun networking
