What is this course about?
“Don’t judge a book by its cover”. The social networking virtual world is a true jungle and the wide range of offerings available can be overwhelming: as a translator, which networks should I use? Which ones are useless? What do I need? What can I realistically expect from each network and which networks can help me reach my objectives and/or respond to my needs? Many colleagues have decided – arbitrarily I shall add – that social networking and social marketing are “a waste of time”, “useless and stupid”, “for desperate amateurs” and the like. Is that really so?
This webinar has two objectives: hopefully break some prejudices by showing that nothing is black or white, and provide a neutral yet hopefully thought-provocative overview of the main social sites, which ones don’t make sense for our profession, which ones do make sense and are useful , what can be realistically expected and achieved with them.
The aim is to provide students with concrete and translation profession-oriented information. This webinar is the online version of Anne’s latest conference presentation (ITI Conference 2013, ProZ.com International Conference 2013) and is for both industry newcomers as well as seasoned translators – any translator wondering about social networking, considering doing it but not sure how or already doing it.
Some feedback from translators who attended a conference presentation version of this course:
“Best I have ever heard on this subject.”
Date and time: September 10th, 2013, 16h30 CET – Central European Time (find out here what time it is in your time zone)
