I went along to a talk on becoming a Chartered Linguist this week, which was run by the London Regional Group of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI). It was good timing for me and I thought it would be a great way to speak to those involved in developing the application process to get answers to a couple of questions I had about it all.
I hadn’t been to an event organised by the London Regional Group for well over a year. The venue was a cosy bar in Chinatown and the room upstairs was literally bursting at the seams. There were lots of familiar faces from various stages of my working life over the past 5 years. It was great to see quite a few of the more newly-established translators too, in addition to the more experienced crowd. I was all set for a long-overdue evening of talking shop. Or so I thought. When I got home, I realised I’d spent the entire evening with my flies undone… nice!
Oh, the talk was very interesting, and I’ll post some of my notes soon 🙂
