This year travel is not an option, so I hope this video will help you relax and enjoy the holiday season safely at home. Thank you for your cooperation in 2020 and looking forward to a better 2021!
METM17: understanding our clients, the writing process from concept to completion
Mediterranean Editors and Translators’ annual conference was held in beautiful Brescia, Italy, from 24 to 26 October. The METM events are always organized in spectacular non-mainstream locations with lovely restaurants and local wines available nearby. The atmosphere is kept intimate by limiting the number of participants to circa 150. There[…]
SLAMconf2016: Promoting Professionalism in a Changing Market
This was the first ever SLAM! conference, in other words Scandinavian Language Associations’ Meeting, participated by circa 250 professional translators and interpreters from and outside the Nordic countries. Although most of the participants speak or understand at least one Scandinavian language, the program was in English, which makes it easier[…]
Season’s Greetings 2015
The half-stripped trees struck by a wind together, bending all, the leaves flutter drily and refuse to let go… With the always-so-appropriate words by William Carlos Williams, it is time to thank you all for another busy and interesting year in business and hope that we can do the same all over again in 2016! Merry[…]
METM15: versatility and readiness for new challenges
My expectations for the Mediterranean Editors and Translators’ annual conference from 28 to 31 October 2015 at the University of Coimbra in Portugal, were high.
Travel blog: Madrid es, simplemente, mejor!

Warm weather kept with us all the way through METM13, the ninth (my first) annual meeting of Mediterranean Editors and Translators that offered top-professional perspectives on language, culture and[…]
My Tales of the Bay: travel blog San Francisco
I’ve always wanted to go to and travel blog San Francisco. It’s a magical city built on high hills like only a few others in the world and connected to the surrounding areas by amazing suspension bridges. It is the home of the hippies and beatniks and other exciting phenomena[…]
BIM changes the London skyline
London’s skyline is transforming into a fine collection of striking skyscrapers with bread-and-butter aliases: The Gherkin, Helter Skelter, Cloud, Boomerang, Three Sisters, Walkie-Talkie, Cheese Grater, Shard… what’s next, the Toilet Brush? In addition to titillating nicknames, what these projects have in common is the necessity to use the latest construction[…]
Travel blog: Then We Take Berlin
I met Dagi on a long-distance bus on our way to Exeter University in 1988. Or maybe it was the summer of 1989. Quite a long time ago, anyway. We’ve been friends ever since, meeting every couple of years in different places around Europe and doing a bit of traveling[…]
