2015 has been a busy year for us at Translating Lawyers (TL). New though the organization is, the individuals who make-up TL have been in the business of translation for a very long time and have several decades’ worth of accumulated knowledge and expertise. A lot of our work was done behind the scenes, but throughout 2015 we have been honored with invitations to speak at conferences and other events in three different continents. The most recent of these events was the 56th Annual Conference of the American Translators Association, where TL Co-Director Paula Arturo gave two presentations and participated in other exciting activities.
Paula’s presentations revolved around two of her favorite topics: negotiation strategies and the human rights arena. Though vastly different from each other, these topics involve a significant part of her work both in directing TL (and her previous work as a freelancer) and as a lawyer-linguist in the human rights arena.
The Conference proved to be a very positive experience that resulted in new clients and projects for the upcoming months. We would like to thank the ATA for this wonderful opportunity, as well as the staff and volunteers that made the conference possible. We would also like to thank each and every person that attended Paula’s presentations.
