Hands-on Translation. First Edition

It was during the first edition of TranslateCluj that we introduced the concept of Hands-on Translation. We wanted to bring practical sessions for linguists based in Romania and abroad, both from within the translation world and from other connected fields. Technology/Automation, localization techniques, business development, translation training and physical exercise were among the topics featured in our maiden edition.
