Oktagon at SLAM Conference

Oktagon at the SLAM! conference in Malmö

On September 24th, 2016, the very first Scandinavian Language Associations’ Meeting (SLAM!) was held at Sankt Gertrud conference centre in Malmö, Sweden.

Some of us from Oktagon took part in the conference. We benefited from inspirational lectures, useful tips and the latest developments in CAT tools and ergonomics, among other things.

We also had the chance to witness a “translation slam”, where two translators simultaneously presented their different versions of the same text – very interesting indeed!

We would like to thank the organisers for all their hard work and we hope to see more of these conferences in the future.
