Twice a year, ELIA (European Language Industry Association) organizes for its members an event entitled “Networking Days”. The first such event was organized in Munich this year during the Labour Day holidays. The participants had an opportunity to familiarize themselves with new trends in the translation industry through presentations and workshops, but also to learn how to place their services on the international market.
Although it was hard to choose among a number of interesting topics sometimes discussed at two or three parallel lectures, the most interesting part was meeting the colleagues from all over Europe. A large number of participants were small and medium-sized translation businesses from all parts of Europe. This gave us an opportunity to exchange experiences, gain an insight into the standings of the translation industry in Serbia in comparison to other countries from the region, as well as to gain new ideas on how to improve our services and overcome difficulties.
