GLD Newsletter – the 02/2021 issue is out!

The 02/2021 issue of the German Language Division’s biannual newsletter—interaktiv—is now online. (Find past issues here.)
The theme of this issue is T&I Tales: GLD Members Reveal Their Most Memorable Assignments. Find out what interesting projects your colleagues have worked on, what’s new with the GLD, and much more.
Here’s a glimpse of what’s inside:

  • An update from our GLD Administrator, Carlie Sitzman
  • (Translation) Notes from the Homeland from our European Coordinator, Ellen Yutzy Glebe
  • Conference Primer for the ATA 62nd Annual Conference
  • 2021 GLD Dinner and Annual Meeting information
  • 5 feature stories celebrating the wide variety of work our field offers
  • A review of Kevin Fandl’s book Lost in Translation: Effective Legal Writing for the International Community
  • And more!

Happy reading!

Mit sonnigen Grüßen aus San Diego

A huge Thank You to: Melissa Kostelecky, who helped me put this issue together, and Daniela Radivo-Harder, for her hard work on designing this newsletter. Thank you also to our copy editors Ivonne Reichard-Novak, Annett Kuester, and Sabine Seiler; and to our proofreaders, Ute Kegel, Kim Scherer, Jill R. Sommer, and Erin Riddle; Rosalie Henke, our book review coordinator; and Stella Waltemade, who keeps us updated on all the important T&I events happening around the world!

Thank you all!
We want you!
Join our fabulous, fun-loving team and get the opportunity to hone your skills (and develop new ones), expand your network, and give back to your profession. We are always looking for contributors to help us bring interesting news to our readers!

In addition, we are looking for:
Interviewer: We’d love to bring an interviewer on board—someone who would interview a GLD member from time to time (1-2 times a year!) and prepare the Q/A for print.
Bloggers: Thinking of starting a blog? Use this opportunity to practice! Already have a blog? We’d be happy to reprint relevant content. Or draft posts for our audience and reprint them on your blog! Some posts will be reprinted in interaktiv.

If you’re interested or have any other ideas, don’t hesitate to contact
