Subject:On networking in Rome From:"John Coghlan" <johncoghlan69 -at- hotmail -dot- com> To:TECHWR-L -at- LISTS -dot- RAYCOMM -dot- COM Date:Mon, 16 Feb 2004 07:23:56 -0500
I have just moved to Rome, while working on a trade journal part-time. So I
am seeking either consulting contracts, freelance contracts, or full-time
work to supplement this. My aim is to network. I have already been in touch
with the Society for Technical Translation Sub-Alpine chapter. Otherwise,
would anyone know of groups, either professional, social or hobby oriented
through which I could network in Rome? Would anyone have any tips on finding
technical writing or translation work in Italy?
I have four degrees in modern languages and have worked as public relations
writer, technical writer, technical translator, periodical writer and
marketing writer. I speak English, French, Italian, Spanish, German,
Portuguese and a fair amount of Russian (I have a degree in Russian
My hobbies are learning languages, writing, fine arts (history of art and
drawing), cuisine, philosophy (epistemology), cybernetics, history and the
history of science, music (orchestral, oriental, jazz (especially bossa
nova) and pop).
Thank you for any leads.
All the best,
