A UTIC-style New Year Gift
When the cold days arrive in Ukraine and the winter holidays approach, we look back at some milestone events.
Five years ago, InText Translation Company decided to make a difference in the Ukrainian translation industry by organizing a new international conference that would bring together academia and business, translators and clients, software developers and users. We called it UTIC — the Ukrainian Translation Industry Conference — and it was a success. The first conference took place in 2013, and was followed by another one just one year later.
In 2016, after a year of non-stop webinar activity, InText once again revolutionized the industry by taking the conference outdoors. We dared to invite the speakers, participants, and sponsors to a former children’s camp in the woods on the bank of a picturesque river, and called the event “UTIСamp-2016”. This was risky, but our gamble paid off: the conference guests spent several beautiful days discussing industry trends in the open air, accompanied by playing, singing and dancing.
Today, as we say farewell to 2017, another year of non-stop online activity by UTIC, we leave behind us three successful in-person events and tons of useful videos on our YouTube channel, as well as countless acquaintances made, friends found and deals closed.
But still, we stand on the cusp of the New Year with a feeling that we could have done more, taken greater care of people and nature, and even of ourselves.
So to shorten our list of New Year resolutions, we’ve decided to make a special gift to all friends of UTIC®, as well as partners and employees of InText Translation Company…a gift that embraces most of our obligations. Instead of sending out traditional greeting cards, the conference organizers want to make a difference one more time by presenting a gift that could only be possible with the help of UTIC’s permanent partners and friends.
The team at InText, organizer of UTIC, have created a video to tell you about this present, and invite you to watch it now on their YouTube channel.
Now that you know what kind of gift awaits you, we hope you will be looking forward to coming to UTICamp in the summer of 2019 for a week full of valuable meetings, education and fun.
Meanwhile, stay tuned for Season 2 of our webinars, which will continue after the New Year holidays (the first season is already online, so don't worry if you missed something).
Thank you for your loyalty and help, which have made this gift possible.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
