Erik Mattsson at in Stockholm in 2016 2016 international conference in Stockholm

Being a freelance translator can be a lonely job, in the sense that we often meet clients and sometimes suppliers, but we rarely see our colleagues (sometimes referred to as “competitors”, but the world is big enough for all of us).

Last weekend, the 2016 international conference in Stockholm was held in my neighbouring city, and I went there to meet visiting language professionals from all over the world. It was a successful event and I learned a lot.
