Chris Durban’s seminar Translate in the Catskills (a.k.a. “Style in Translation”) is back by popular demand, from August 12-14, 2011.

Like Translate in the Catskills 2009, the 2011 session will be held at the beautiful and historic Sugar Maples Center for Creative Arts in the hamlet of Maplecrest, New York.

Join Chris Durban, Grant Hamilton and other fabulous instructors for a 2.5-day seminar exclusively for translators interested in polishing their target-language writing skills.

Why should you attend?

Because better writing skills are essential to (re)position yourself at the top end of the market, build a clientele of quality-oriented customers and leave the churn-it-out bulk market behind.

Because premium clients — the ones who value your expert insights, make you part of the team and pay top rates — require outstanding writing skills. It’s as simple as that.

But let’s not forget improved job satisfaction. After all, the writing side of translation is part of what made you choose this profession in the first place, right?

This intensive, advanced level workshop will be based primarily on examples from French>English and English>French translation, but the focus is on writing. Translators of other languages are very welcome.
