Informal training

INFORMAL TRAINING

One-day educational seminars

During all the years of working in the Association, we have become aware of the shortcomings in our educational system and the overall lack of additional education of language experts and all those interested in some area of language.

The lack of formal educational system is that there are no specialised institutions for higher education that would continuously and professionally educate interpreters and proofreaders. The knowledge gained at the faculty is oriented towards working in school, and the only way to gain knowledge in interpreting and proofreading is practice. Of course, you cannot get a job without experience, and there you walk in circles.

When you have already gained some experience and necessary knowledge, there are no informal ways to get additional education and get involved into global currents which have to do with e.g. the usage of translation software.

Based on our experience, we have devised a way to solve the above-mentioned problems by offering you informal training which should ease the shortcomings and gaps in our educational system and thus help young people in their fight for being competitive at the labour market.

The target group of all the seminars are language students, people who do not have a formal education but work on interpreting or translation jobs, proofreading, and all those who feel the need for further improvement or exchanging experience.

The seminars are also open for ‘non-linguists’ – for those who need English for business correspondence, for those expected to use the standard language, those who are not sure about their Microsoft Word skills or those who need to write an academic paper. All those people can find a seminar that fits their needs.
