ProZ.com powwow: presentation + regular good time

November 7, 2009, 1:00 pm
Royaume-UniOxfordIn personanglais
Trying to include some professional feedback, I could make a quick presentation of Trados or MemoQ or on how to handle graphic files. Let me know what would be of interest to you.
Any other suggestions or wishes more than welcome.

Some update:

1. Venue
I agree that a place where we could relatively freely talk is very important. It is, however, rather difficult to find, especially free of charge. Any suggestions?
I'm talking to Oxford Uni Club about meeting at their venue at Mansfield Road. I think it is a good place for talking and having a drink but they don't offer food on weekends. Maybe we should meet for a presentation at one place and move somewhere else afterwards? What do you think? Should I try somewhere else?

2. Topics.

I could present TRADOS and cover the following:
- what Trados is
- what Trados isn't
- advantages of Trados
- disadvantages of Trados
- how it works
- supported programs
- additional functions

MEMOQ:
- general presentation of the program
- things I like and other things in the software

HANDLING GRAPHIC FILES, INCLUDING PDF's
- difficulties with graphic formats
- using ABBYY FineReader

Let me know if you are coming, what topic would be interesting to you, if any, and what are your preferences regarding the venue (food / food not required).

I will post detailed info regarding directions when the venue is selected. Let me just add that it is really easy to get to Oxford from London (bus from downtown every 20-30 minutes).

Regards, hoping to see you this Saturday,

Best,

Stan

Multiterm. Nov 2, 2009

I am not very experienced with multiterm, although I could briefly show how it works and how it can be useful, especially with large projects or projects done by a team of translators.

I have little experience with those, maybe someone else does and feels like sharing some experience?

Venue/Food Nov 2, 2009

Hope to attend if the presentation takes place in the afternoon.
Think your suggestion of going elsewhere afterwards for food/drinks is a good one.

socializing Nov 5, 2009

Probably after two or three hours at Oxford Uni Club we will move somewhere else to eat or drink. Don't hesitate to join us later if you don't feel like talking CAT. I think we'll try Oxford Retreat at Hythe Bridge Street, unless you suggest somewhere else.

I'm not sure. I'll try to check it tonight. Could be difficult to find a spot at the street.

Parking Nov 5, 2009

Unless you get a Univ permit, it will be almost impossible to find a parking spot near the Univ club or in town. Recommend using Park&Ride.

time Nov 6, 2009

Lisa asked me to confirm the time. Yes, it is to start at 1:00 p.m. and we can stay for at least 4, 5 hours there.
One more piece of news: Uni Club's kitchen will probably be open tomorrow after 2:00 p.m.
