JAT理事を通して得た経験 - 2 - 宮原健 Blog

私は2019年時点で会員になってまだ2年目でしたが、思い切って2019年~2021年期で理事を務めたことはとても良い経験になりました。 在宅翻訳を専業にすると、企業では日常的に起こる、仲間と連携して物事を進めるという経験の機会が(仕事内容や業務形態により状況は異なるものの)少なくなりがちです。そうした環境を好んで在宅翻訳を仕事にする方もいるとは思いますが、人と一緒に話を進める仕事は、自主勉強する中で得るものとはまた別の、話し合うからこそ出てくる思いつきや新しい発見があります。 理事はSIGs/RACsや会員獲得、各種渉外リエゾン、財務、バックエンドのITサポートなど色々な業務を分担することになりますが、担当の範囲でも影響の大きなものは自分だけで判断を下さず皆で話し合いをします。私自身自分の強みを生かせると思って財務担当に立候補し、業務範疇で小さな改善をしてはいますが、たとえばOGMで...

JAT理事を通して得た経験 - 1 - 小泉志保 Blog

2018年に理事に就任し、今年度(2022年)で任期満了となります。4年間で、法務、書記、JTFリエゾン、雑誌「通訳翻訳ジャーナル」を発行するイカロス社とのリエゾンなどを主に担当しました。法務業務は毎年の総会準備やそれに伴う手続き、選挙委員会の運営、理事長交代時の手続き、理事変更時の手続き、定款等変更時の手続き等を行います。書記業務は、1年に2回行われる理事会での議事録の作成や名刺の発注などを主に担当します。リエゾン業務は、主に外部団体・会社との窓口係です。これらの業務は単独で行うものもあれば、チーム制を組んで複数のメンバーと共同で行い、問題が発生した場合は他の理事とも相談しているので、ひとりで抱え込むことはありません。 理事になってよかったことは、やはり世界中の同業者との繋がりを得られたことでしょうか。私の専門は医学・医薬翻訳ですが、専門以外の翻訳者さんたちとも出会うことができたこ...

Eighteenth Annual JAT Contest: Commentaries from the Judges 3-3 News

E45 FinalistCatherine XuNSW Australia Catherine’s English was particularly appropriate for the Japanese text.

Taking quite a bit of license she used...
