Do you have questions you would like to ask about working in the translation industry? Or would you be willing to share your own experience and wisdom with your colleagues? If you are looking for a place to ask your questions and benefit from the collective wisdom of the JAT community, or if you would like to be part of the conversation, please register to attend our first ever Ask Anything Session.

Submit your questions when you register to attend and the moderator will do her best to ensure that as many questions as possible are answered by multiple attendees with a variety of different perspectives. In order to encourage frank conversation and open discussion, the meeting will not be recorded, so you can be completely anonymous in your asking and your answering.

No questions are off limits. Ask about anything you like: finding work, specialization, office set-up, CAT tools, work-life balance, etc.
