Did you recently receive an email about a new translation platform called Lingorate? Even if you didn’t you are probably listed without your permission. Rose Newell has done a wonderful job backing up and documenting the site’s duplicity. She does such a good job anything I would write about it would be redundant. You can read about it at Lingorate: the latest identity theft scam to target translators?

Advanced Skills and Training Day, November 2 August 26, 2016

There’s a new change to this year’s ATA conference. You’ve asked for more advanced and in-depth sessions, and ATA has heard you. This is your chance to prove to the ATA that they are welcome and needed. The pre-conference sessions are now a full day of three-hour courses taught by invited presenters. It’s now called the Advanced Skills & Training Day. Come join me and Allison Bryant from 8:30am-12:00pm on November 2 at “Mastering PDFs using OCR and Advanced Formatting Features in Word.” This hands-on session (bring your laptops!!) is limited to 30 participants, so register soon to ensure you will be a part of it. I’ve already had several people reach out to me about it and express their excitement. Through hands-on activities, you will learn how to stop wasting your time and start impressing your clients. By learning OCR technology, advanced formatting techniques in Word, and other tricks for easily manipulating PDFs and other non-editable documents, you too can become a formatting guru.

You can learn more about it here: http://www.atanet.org/conf/2016/astday/

The only caveat is that people *must* register for the conference in order to attend AST day. You cannot register for an AST session alone.
