BP20 going online

After careful consideration, a painful but necessary decision had to be made.  Due to circumstances beyond our control cannot hold our beloved conference as originally planned.  Instead of plain old cancellation, we’ll go online.  To the cloud.

We started testing an online webinar platform, and the first tests are encouraging.  The platform allows you to watch the sessions, the slides, and you can also ask questions and chat during the sessions.

We’re checking out some other platforms to create a semblance of the social aspects of the usual conference experience.

More news to come soon, before 20 March.  Meanwhile make sure you sign up to our mailing list.

Registration will open once all features have been successfully tested, probably in the last week of March.

BP20 Translation Conference online

BP20 Translation Conference will take place in Nuremberg, Germany, on 23-25 April 2020. ‘BP’ stands for Business & Practice, the two overarching themes of our annual events.  Our first conference took place in Budapest in 2014, the organizer’s home town, and we move around to another country every year. In fact, BP20 will be the seventh conference already. Over the years, BP Translation Conferences have become probably the most popular CPD events in Europe among freelance translators.

This year we’ve been forced to go online with our conference. Instead of cancelling it altogether, now we have a chance to reach an ever wider audience across the globe, allowing translators to belong to a community of like-minded individuals, while improving their skills in the business and practice of freelance translation.

Sign up above for more details, to be announced soon.

Here’s a growing list of masterclasses, sessions, and talks at BP20

International crowd

The last couple of years over 40 countries were represented at BP18 and BP19, and the total number countries represented at all 6 BP Translation Conferences is almost 60.  We’re a truly international bunch, open to other cultures — after all, we’re in the business of breaking down communication barriers.  Below is our latest group photo from Bologna.
