Linguists for Sail

On 13 April Emma Gledhill and Sue Fortescue presented, via Zoom, a talk entitled ‘Linguists for Sail’. Emma described her experience of being caught up in a storm in the Greek Islands and Sue described what it was like to be a Gamesmaker for the 2012 London Paralympic sailing events.There was a lot of interest from translators in this presentation and it led to Sue and Emma putting in an application to form an ITI Sailing & Boating Network. The application will be reviewed by the ITI Board in early May, and we are keeping our fingers crossed that it will be approved!
