A conference for European language service providers: ELIA Networking Days in Bucharest!
The AIRV translation agency, based in Lithuania and boasting more than 20 years of experience, is a current member of the Lithuanian Association of Translation Companies (LATC) and, as of 2016, the European Language Industry Association (ELIA). In order to share know-how, gain additional experience and expand our circle of trusted partners, we attended the ELIA Networking Days conference, held for all translation companies belonging to the association, in Bucharest, Romania on 14-15 October. It was the second ELIA event that AIRV participated in, and we truly appreciate the opportunity to be a member of this outstanding European family!
Since many participants came to Bucharest the day before the conference, the organizers held an informal reception on the eve of the event. It was a great opportunity for us to interact with colleagues in an informal environment, recalling past events, discussing what changes have taken place during this time, and talking about where we are now.
Topical subjects such as business and project management, human resources, the role of technology, business innovations, and stories of development and success were all discussed at the conference. Every participant had the opportunity to choose topics of interest and attend various presentations, participate in round tables with others working in the language industry, and exchange ideas about the various issues we encounter every day in translating, interpreting and expanding our businesses. As AIRV is dedicated to going above and beyond customer expectations and requirements, we were pleased to share information and gain new insights about transparent leadership and self-regulation when it comes to different client projects and digital marketing (which today is an integral part of the growth of any business). In doing so, we were able to verify for ourselves that our translation agency is on the right track, hand in hand with the latest trends of business technology and innovations.
After two days of discussions and presentations, the ever-energetic organizers led a short trip around the most famous destinations in Bucharest and offered their insight into Romanian culture and history. We were fascinated with the city’s magnificent architecture as we continued discussions on relevant aspects of the translation industry.
Because there is no such thing as too much knowledge, the next benchmark on AIRV’s agenda is a visit to the Nordic Translation Industry Forum (NTIF) in Helsinki on 23-24 November. Keep an eye out for updates from us, we’ll be sharing the news from this forum very soon!
