ProZ Conference 2013 - O Porto, My Porto

I am very pleased to announce that I will be participating as a presenter at this year's International Conference in Porto from June 8 to 9, 2013. This year's theme is "New Demands on the Translation Industry" and many great presenters are already lined up (Mox is coming!). Follow the jump to learn more about the conference and registration and to read more about my presentation. I will sure to have something snazzy for you with lots of take-away resources as always.

And, for those of you on the fence about registering, did I forget to mention Saturday night's Gala Dinner at the Burmester Cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.

The Next Wave: Understanding How IT Developments Are Changing the Future of Medical Translation
Demand is exploding in the field of medical translation with the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device sectors representing the second-largest market share in the industry. Despite fast-growing demand and higher volumes of translation services in both traditional and emerging markets, the life sciences vertical is set to face new challenges in an expanding geographic environment that has become increasingly regulated and quality-driven. We will take a closer look at the trends currently driving the medical translation industry, including the recent push towards multilingual harmonization through controlled language and the implementation of common technological applications. Recent changes in the regulatory environment, transitions to e-documentation, and new approaches to terminology management as determinants of quality and consistency will also be explored.

O Vinho do Porto Burmester nasce de um acumular de saberes e tradições que remontam a um tempo em que a Região do Douro ainda não era Demarcada... Em 1750, data de fundação da J. W. Burmester, iniciamos um trabalho exaustivo na produção de Vinhos de Excelência que ainda hoje perdura.
