We were delighted to see a great turnout at our monthly get-together on a beautiful fall evening in September. It was also the day of the America’s Cup final race—no wonder there were so many people at the waterfront! Among the tourists and spectators, we spread out at a long table at Mijita Cocina Mexicana. Along the table were many friendly faces of veteran NCTA translators and one fairly new member. We talked about topics from the world of translation, current events, and world politics.
This regular social event has been a place for the members to mingle over casual drinks and dinner at a cantina in the Ferry Building overlooking our Bay. No set agenda, no host—but do expect lively conversation and much advice or practical tips from colleagues. If you’re lucky you may get your technical questions answered by some of our Trados gurus. Hope to see you at the next Happy Hour! KW
