Letter from Marina Ilari, Administrator of the ATA TCD, Summer 2021

Published on 01.09.2021

As many of you, I’m looking forward to our next ATA conference in Minneapolis this year. The TCD has invited Anna Schlegel as its distinguished speaker. Ms. Schlegel will be presenting two 60-minute presentations titled “From Translator to Top Innovator” and “An Evolving Globalization Industry: A Conversation about Challenges and Solutions.” In this issue of our newsletter, we have interviewed Ms. Schlegel so that you can learn more about her and her anticipated presentations.

I hope to see you at our TCD annual meeting via Zoom on October 8 at 12:30 EDT. We look forward to sharing what the division has been working on and providing a space for members to network and get to know one another.

I would like to thank our newly appointed assistant administrator, Charo Welle, and the dedicated leadership council for all their work with TCD. It’s important to make mention that the division is made possible with the work of volunteers who believe in our mission to provide opportunities for division members to network, as well as to promote collaboration between translation companies and independent translators.

I’m excited for this new issue of TCD’s newsletter! We have some great articles and interviews in this issue. If you are interested in collaborating with our newsletter writing articles that are of interest to the translation industry and project managers, please contact us at [email protected].

Thank you again to our kind volunteers.
