Event Format

Confirmed/Agreed

  • Local events during the 24-hour period

Ideas

  • Use the preceding week to promote awareness of translation-related activities (mentoring new translators and building resources such as getting started guide/ glossary/style guide)
  • Have several (pairs of?) local hosts run the live streaming as a team relay rather than a marathon

Next Meeting
