In-house training with Ecaterina Godoroja, trainer in communication and diction

"Why are we afraid of the audience?" This was the key issue of the training conducted by Mrs. Ecaterina Godoroja. Indeed! Why some interpreters do not feel comfortable in front of a large audience, lose their self-control, forget what they want to say and wish to run away and hide somewhere where nobody can see them, maybe even in the simultaneous interpretation booth. Some interpreters feel more comfortable in that little "cage" than in front of people, even if they lack the basic conveniences.


International Day of Translations, celebrated by the Association of Professional Translators of Moldova (ATP Moldova)

This year, 2017, the Association of Professional Translators of Moldova (ATP Moldova) celebrated the International Translation Day in an extended format, that is, with an invitation of all active translators of the country, including the ones of the Union of Authorised Translators (ATU). The event was organized within the premises of the Ministry of Justice with the support of the Service for certified interpreters, translators and administrators, represented by Ms Ina Chetrean - Head of the Service. The special guests of the event were Vlad Pohila - distinguished linguist, writer and journalist, and Valentin Reabtov - translator and interpreter on the staff of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova. The event was attended by many fellow translators and interpreters, freelancers both members of ATP Moldova and of different translation companies.


The 2017 Retreat - a new event organized by the Association of Professional Translators of Moldova

It seems that the word "retreat" is slowly entering the vocabulary of more and more institutions and organizations, especially those working with terminology accepted in Western Europe. There is also a Romanian word "retragere", which could express the meaning of evading from a stressful environment, from the noise, from the pressing tasks and all kinds of obligations and finding a refuge, where one can discuss leisurely, in a serene environment and where participants are not distracted by other things. We, the translators, have accepted the term “retreat”, because we still have not found its best translation to Romanian.
