Marketing for freelance translators: This ITI marketing workshop for translators is proving highly popular, with over 25 bookings received so far. I'll run a general marketing session in the morning, looking at ways that freelance translators traditionally contact potential clients, at how successful these traditional methods are, and at new ways to bring yourself to the attention of potential clients. Then in the afternoon, Vernon Blackmore of Ambit New Media will provide insights into setting up your own web presence (I'll leave it phrased as loosely as that, since both Vernon and I think it goes beyond just "having a web site"). Along the way, we'll look at ways of developing sustainable long-term relationships with your clients.

Our venue for this exciting one-day Saturday conference will be The Studio, an upmarket, funky, prize-winning conference and training centre right in the heart of Birmingham. Organiser Ros Mendy tells me that there will be groups meeting for dinner on the Friday evening and the Saturday evening, and to round off the social programme there will be a guided walking tour of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter and a visit to the Pen Museum. All in all, it sounds like a perfect opportunity for a weekend away in one of Britain's exciting, revitalised former industrial heartlands.
