Hello MATI members!
We now present to you with great excitement and pride the new, and much improved, MATI website! YES! Countless hours went into its creation, and on behalf of all MATI members, the Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to thank Christina Green and Susan Schweigert for the untiring effort they put into redesigning the website and giving our organization a new and modern image. That is truly something for which to be thankful, and we hope all of you feel as re-energized about our organization as we do, as we collectively witness the unveiling of this site.
Along with our new website, we have a new blog, a new adventure for MATI! Once fully up and running, this blog will be updated weekly, and every month you can expect to receive an email in which excerpts of blog entries have been compiled for your convenience. The blog will feature articles by local experts in translation and interpretation, and subject matter will include issues pertaining to the field in the form of explorations into language, methodology and technology, book reviews, biographies, notes on presenters and meeting summaries. Most importantly, the blog will feature things that are important to you: your concerns, your accomplishments and your ideas!
Please do not hesitate to make contributions to the blog or suggestions for its improvement. We look forward to writing this new chapter of our organization’s history with the wonderful community that is MATI.
The MATI Board of Directors
