My Continuing Education

Continuing Education Constant Learning Image

Continuing education is an absolute must in the nowadays fast-paced translation and interpreting industry. So I am constantly striving to keep up to date my professional knowledge, including recent developments in the subject areas I work in, changes in terminology, and updates to technical tools I use in my work. To achieve this, among other things, I attend workshops organized by the Northern California Translators Association (NCTA) and online webinars offered by the American Translators Association (ATA) and the California Healthcare Interpreting Association (CHIA). Below are some of the continuing education events I have attended in the last few years:
