Ramping up for the ATA Conference November 5, 2013

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in ATA.

I am flying out to San Antonio tomorrow for the 54th Annual ATA Conference. After a bit of a snafu with my cat sitters (they just got a cat, and the two cats instantly disliked each other, necessitating an emergency trip back to my house tonight), Plan B is lined up to pick up my house keys tomorrow early enough to ensure I am up and get out to vote before I have to head out to the airport.

I’ve booked an airport shuttle (GoShuttle.com) to transport me between the airport and hotel and the boarding passes are printed out. My flight details are stored, my updated resume and profile are uploaded to my profile on the conference mobile app, and my presentation is printed out. Trados Studio is now installed on my laptop so that I can finish a translation for a client. My clothes are stacked and ready to be thrown into the suitcase tomorrow morning (the dog gets bent out of shape if I take the suitcase out the night before). Why is it that I try to do a ton of things the day before I leave for a trip? Human nature I guess.

I am bummed that all of my divisions (3!) are holding their division dinners from 7-9 on Thursday night. I chose to go with the German Language Division, but hope the Medical Division and Language Technology Divisions have successful dinners as well.

I have some meals planned with my newbie as well as with some fellow translators, so that is something to look forwards to. I look forward to seeing many of you there. If you see me in the hallway in San Antonio please say hi!
