Back In Kansas Again

When I lived in the Mid-West and was active in the Mid-America Chapter of the American Translators Association (MICATA), I frequently had to drive to places like Leawood or Overland Park, just beyond the Missouri-Kansas state line. After starting the 130-mile drive back to central Missouri, I would usually call home from I-435 to announce that I wasn’t in Kansas anymore. A bit lame, I admit, but I thought it was funny enough.

On May 21-22, I will be back in Kansas for the MICATA Symposium 2010 Looking to the Future: What’s Next for Translators and Interpreters. I am scheduled to give two one-hour presentations, one on free and open-source software for language professionals; and one on protecting your most valuable assets: data security and confidentiality.

There are a lot of great sessions on Saturday, a Welcome Reception on Friday evening, an optional dinner on Saturday evening, and an optional ATA certification exam on Sunday. Take a look at the schedule, and if you are in the area (or always wanted to travel to Kansas), register for this event.
