Translating online is great – translating offline with buddies is even better! That’s what we figured – and so, in line with this insight, we decided to launch a regular Marco Polo Project Melbourne Meetup!
The first of those took place last Wednesday, March 20, at the Melbourne Multicultural Hub, in partnership with Language Connection.
The Marco Polo meetup is a low-key get-together for Mandarin language enthusiasts to practice translation in small teams of three. During this first event, we translated the opening paragraphs to three pieces from China30s: ‘From Harvard to the alpaca business‘, ‘Triathlon changed my view of life‘ and ‘A young man’s magic time machine‘.
We’re planning to run these events on a monthly basis – so, help us spread the word – and come along next time!
