IndienNew DelhiIn personSpanisch
Hi everyone,

So far, it looks like we will be a small group for this powwow. I suggest we meet at my house,

Date: Saturday, 29th September

Time: 6.30 p.m.


We can order pizzas, or anything else you like. The cost of food is to be shared by all participants. I will provide the drinks.

If more people sign up by the 29th, and there are too many for me to accommodate at my place, this plan will change and I will find another venue. I will keep you informed about this.

Looking forward to meeting all of you!

Best regards,
Niraja

Thanks to those who have signed up so far. The idea behind this powwow is to greet translators all over the world. I have some ideas on what we could do, but would like to wait for another week and see if more people are interested, before making any further announcements.

Best regards,

Skype connection and topics for discussion Sep 24, 2007

Hi everyone,

I now have a Skype connection, so we can try and contact some of the other powwows being held in other countries and have a chat with colleagues there. We can also discuss any topics related to translation and the profession during the powwow, so do think about anything you would like to ask your colleagues.

Best regards,
Niraja
