Charles Gittins, DGT

This week sees the visit of Charles Gittins at Imperial College London's Translation Group. Charles Gittins works as a translator into English and translation and quality manager at the Directorate General for Translation in Brussels.

Today he spoke for half the group of students about translation at DGT, the English section and how issues experienced there also go for other target language. He spoke very enthusiastically about his workplace, and about Brussels too.

Tomorrow, Thursday 17 November he will repeat this, 12-1pm at Huxley Lecture Theatre 144. This event is open to all.

Thursday 17th November at 12.00 – 13.00, in Huxley Lecture Theatre 144.

  1. Personally, I really enjoy participating in such events. Meeting new people, listening to professionals who are really enthousiastic about their job - it is something that everyone should have access to and take as much as possible from those particular moments.

    The London translation theme is even more tempting. There are so many new translation companies opening every day, and one can never guess which ones have truly qualified translators, and which ones are just trying to make quick and easy profit, with the emphasis on quantity, not quality.
