We had a great turnout for our October speaker Sam Berner from the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators Inc (AUSIT). Sam and EdsQ member Glenine Hamlyn AE were in conversation about what translators do and some things for editors to bear in mind when working with translated material. We were joined by a group of AUSIT members and made some new language-loving friends. In my last report I mistakenly said that Glenine is a member of AUSIT, so apologies for the error.
I'm excited about our November speaker Kayt Duncan. I've known Kayt about a million years and she's a very funny and creative person. Kayt published her first children's book Summertime Storm earlier this year and her new book Spotty Dotty has just been released. They're available online. When she first mentioned her twin-vision book idea I knew it would be a great topic for EdsQ members.
