I've been to a half-day seminar on drafting and language at the IALS Legislative drafting and language and a CIoL legal translation conference with a heavy EU element. They were both excellent, but I have given up reviewing conferences (after starting with the ATA one in New Jersey when this blog started in 2003). All the presenters were good, but one is always interested in one thing more than another. Details at the bottom, in case the links die. It was great to put faces to some colleagues I only knew virtually. Alas, the CIoL conference gave us no list of participants. I think they were mostly IoL people, but I must have missed a few I knew. We were put on language-based tables, so I was on DE>EN, presumably in preparation for the afternoon translation session, which I did not attend. I think I will put a few notes and links I picked up in a separate entry later or tomorrow.
