Michael Bailey speaking in Bonn


I speak at conferences, seminars and working groups on various aspects of translation, in the in-house setting, in particular as a translator directly embedded into the supervisory setting. I am also happy to moderate sessions at conferences (either single or multiple presentations, panel discussions, or World Cafe (Weltcafe) format sessions).
