Dancing the Translation Tango

It's great when you get a technically qualified, native speaker of a language to review a translation -- usually! But difficulties can arise.

On September 24, Dorothy van Lingen of Net-Translators will discuss the often complex task of involving an in-country reviewer (ICR) in the translation and localization process. She will define the role of the ICR and explain why so many companies fail to manage this process effectively.

By explaining how to set guidelines for feedback, what to comment on and why, and how to maintain a schedule, Dorothy will provide practical insight into managing this complex challenge. Be sure to come with your questions!

Join us for this, our first program of the 2014-2015 season, and reconnect with friends after a long, busy summer. We'd love to see you there!

About STC New England

The New England chapter is one of the largest chapters in the Society for Technical Communication (STC) with more than 250 members. The New England chapter serves technical communications professionals in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The chapter sponsors monthly programs, informal social events, an annual technical publications competition, and a regional professional conference.

STC New England was formed in 2011 when the Boston Chapter and the Northern New England Chapter merged to form the New England chapter. The Boston Chapter, incorporated in 1953, and the Association of Technical Writers and Editors in New York City were founding chapters of the STC.
