Workshops

One of the objectives of Cymdeithas Cyfieithwyr Cymru is to ensure opportunities for its members and other translators to improve, enhance and develop their skills and knowledge. We, therefore, organise workshops which are relevant to the needs of translators and interpreters at every level of their careers. These workshops are held in different locations throughout Wales in order to make them convenient for translators and interpreters wherever they work and live to attend. This provision is considered to be a very important service that is universally valued.

We also organize the translation e-workshop, which is a form of training which takes place via e-mail only.

Workshops will be held through the medium of Welsh unless otherwise stated.
