Every year we organize a seminar for our partners in Tokyo and Hiroshima. The goal is to discuss various topics related to translation and strengthen the ties with the members of our professional network.
This year, the Tokyo seminar took place on July 21, and the Hiroshima seminar was held on July 28. Both seminars consisted of morning and afternoon sessions. In the morning, we discussed issues related to patent translation, whereas in the afternoon, one of our most experienced English translators held a lecture about how to convey the meaning of culturally significant Japanese expressions to tourists in Japan. The seminar included group work, during which the participants were encouraged to exchange opinions and come up with creative translation solutions on their own.
At the end of each seminar, the participants were invited to enjoy a light snack and a friendly chat with the AIBS employees. We all had a great time, and we are already looking forward to next year!
