QSD, whose President, Heike Leinhäuser, is also President of the EUATC, sponsored two speed networking sessions during the conference. Around 70 delegates attended each of the networking sessions, both of which were sold out after less than an hour.
Commenting Heike Leinhäuser said: “The feedback from the sessions was very positive. It is proves conclusively there is demand to have a more active relationship between freelancer linguists and translation companies.”
The annual conference attracted around 1,200 language industry professionals and was held in the former Deutsche Bundestag building in Bonn.
