Every Spring and Autumn, the SDL Trados Roadshow takes places where we can meet you and showcase new and exciting developments in the translation industry. What’s even better is this year we are also celebrating 25 years of SDL.
But why should you attend the SDL Trados Roadshow? We’ve put together the top 5 reasons why you should book your seat today.
1. SDL Trados Roadshow takes place in over 15 locations
The SDL Trados Roadshow is different to events you are used to attending. Instead of hosting one big event, we bring the events directly to you across Europe and North America. This means you don’t have to travel too far to come and learn more about our products, including SDL Trados Studio, SDL MultiTerm and SDL Trados GroupShare.
2. An afternoon of FREE SDL Trados Studio training
This is your chance to learn something new about SDL Trados Studio. The training is for all experience levels so there will be something for everyone. This is a great opportunity to gain in-depth, hands on training which you would usually have to pay for. This year, we will also be running a beginners session for SDL Trados Studio during lunch for anybody who is new to CAT tools.
If you wish to only attend the afternoon training session, this is totally fine. We understand sometimes being away from work all day is not possible, so this is why we have given attendees this opportunity. You will be given the chance to select which option you prefer in future email communications, once you have registered to attend.
3. Plenty of networking opportunities
Over 50% of people who attended an SDL Trados Roadshow in the Spring told us the main reason they attended was for the networking opportunities available to them. The events are attended by freelance translators, Language Service Providers, corporate translation departments and students, which gives the whole translation eco-system the chance to network.
Throughout the day there are 15-minute tea and coffee breaks and a 1-hour break for lunch, to allow you the time that is needed to network. This means you can catch up with existing clients or start to build new professional and personal relationships.
4. Discover what is next for the translation industry
At the SDL Trados Roadshow, we always look to discuss trends and topics which we think will impact the translation industry. Previously we have spoken about topics such as ‘The Internet of Things’ and ‘The impact of Artificial Intelligence on the translation industry.’
At our next series of Roadshows in the Autumn, we will be discussing the topic of ‘Augmented Translation’ and what this means for translators in the future. We will also take a look at the latest results for our Translation Technology Survey, which you can read here.
5. Q&A Session
This is your chance to ask us anything product related to our panel of experts. Don’t be shy, if you have something to ask us, the SDL Trados Roadshow is the perfect place to do it.
Oh, and one more great reason to attend is everyone gets a free lunch – who can say no to free food?
