This year's ATA conference in Boston was just fantastic. The event drew a large audience from across the U.S. and around the world.
As we did last year in Denver, ForeignExchange Translations organized a happy hour for our medical translation partners. We were able to gather a big group of linguists and share ideas with folks we generally "talk to" over email.
The evening generated good discussions around turnaround time pressures, client deadlines, quality expectation, pricing, negotiations, and collaboration. Some folks commented that it had been great to see ForeignExchange speak about METRiQ at other events, and that it gave them good insight into our quality system and why we ask some of the things we do from translators.
The crowd had such a good time that the planned-for happy "hour" turned into three. Let's do it again next year in San Diego!
